ICARUS VI: Ann Arbor, Michigan, September 29 - October 1, 2023
The Initiative on Climate Adaptation Research and Understanding through the Social Sciences (ICARUS) brings together scholars, researchers, students, decision-makers, and activists working on adaptation to climate variability and change. Members of the initiative are particularly interested in social-scientific and humanistic approaches to understanding climate-related vulnerabilities, risks, and human and ecosystem responses to vulnerability and risks over time and across scales. Vulnerability and adaptation are key concepts in the social science literature on climate change. They have long interlinked histories. Scholars of development, disaster management and mitigation, hunger, famine, migration, and ecological systems have contributed insights into the meanings and drivers of vulnerability. The current ICARUS event marks the sixth workshop since 2010.

The ICARUS workshop is designed to facilitate deep engagement and exchange. Therefore the meeting is kept relatively small, with 20-40 participants. There is no registration fee to participate in this workshop. A very limited number of need-based stipends are available for travel and accommodation costs. More information will be provided with notification of abstract acceptance.
Workshop participants will be encouraged to contribute their paper to a special issue proposal.
