COSMOVIS- Russia Team

Cosmological Visionaries is a 6-year project funded by the European Research Council Synergy Grant scheme (grant agreement number 856543, acronym COSMOVIS). It is comprised of two teams, the Russia Team led by Olga Ulturgasheva, Principle Investigator at the University of Manchester, and the China Team led by Katherine Swancutt, Principle Investigator at King’s College London.

Cosmological Visionaries (COSMOVIS) explores what global environmental initiatives of the future will look like. Starting from the position that cosmology often evokes religious ways of knowing or being, the project brings together anthropologists, ethnologists, historians and philosophers of science and ethics, religious studies experts, space and satellite researchers, indigenous leaders and environmental scientists to examine how climate change is managed at the ethnic borderlands of China and Russia.
