Congratulations to Ping Huang, Linda Westman and Vanesa Castán Broto on their new open access article published with the Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers (Royal Geographical Society with IBG). “A culture-led approach to understanding energy transitions in China: The correlative epistemology” proposes a correlative epistemology to understand energy transitions in China. Such a relational focus enables a culture-led reading of China’s energy transitions, thus responding to calls for transition theories ‘from elsewhere.’ Correlative interpretations of innovation and transition processes in China frame energy transitions within broader societal transformations, define the operation of transition governance, and reveal that pre-existing guanxi networks shape the activities.
Additionally, Ping Huang presented the result of the article at the China Geography Editing and Publishing Annual Conference on 28-30th May 2021. You can view a copy of the presentation slides via the LoAct Website (slides in Chinese).
