Biographie de David Holmes :
David is Founder and Director of the Climate Change Communication Research Hub at Monash University, Australia.
He is co-editor of the forthcoming Edward Elgar Handbook in Communicating Climate Change. David also conducts extensive field research into audience views of climate change beliefs, literacy and behaviour response. Having authored the first ever chapter on the sociology of climate change in an Australian sociology textbook (Holmes D, Hughes K and Julian R, (2015) Australian Sociology : A Changing Society, 4th edition), David is committed to inter-disciplinary responses to climate change. In Marrakech 2016 he was co-Head of Monash’s UNFCCC Delegation to COP22 and an accredited journalist reporting on the Paris Climate Summit (COP21) for The Conversation in 2015.David completed a PhD in Social Theory (Department of the History and Philosophy of Science) at the University of Melbourne, where he was also awarded the Dwight Prize for Political Science. In the following decade he published three books in the sociology of communications including his international best-selling : Communication Theory : Media, Technology and Society, London, Sage, that has been translated into three languages. At the Hub, David brings together this interdisciplinary background in science studies, political science, sociology and communication scholarship in the approach it takes to climate change.
