Marc Hudson holds two undergraduate degrees, one from the University of Adelaide, Australia, and the other from University of Salford. He worked for more years than he cares to admit as a health care professional in the National Health Service
The research he is undertaking is concerned with the responses – technical, political, economic, social – made by coal industry companies in Australia and the United States in response to climate change since the late 1980s. More precisely, he is testing/refining the Dialectical Issue LifeCycle (DILC) model, a novel heuristic framework that builds upon previous “issue attention cycle” theorising. Empirical work will (probably) involve archival work, interviews, discourse analysis, and other techniques. He is keen to produce work that is both intellectually rigorous and socially useful.
