Textual Framing and Research Bias in Current Economic Research” is a social sciences research project working under the interdisciplinary umbrella of the environmental humanities that seeks to scrutinise how frames influence and possibly distort the outcome of economic research on the environment. It works with economic research published between 2016 and today in top-ranked academic journals, such as Ecological Economics and Quarterly Journal of Economics.

How do we tell the stories of the land through the struggle and resistance of its inhabitants? How should one belong to and empathize with an environment that is not pristine and green? How should we reimagine our intimacy with violated environments?
