Description :
This paper aims to understand the intersecting politics of climate and society research by situating their emergence through 3 lenses of inquiry. 1), the AA. explore the historical disciplinary work of application in geographical climatology, paying particular attention to how relevance has been understood and practised. 2), they reassemble a missed disciplinary conversation about ideology in applied geography, and link this to definitions and rationales for applied climatology. 3), they explore 5 recent thematic engagements in applied climatology, to generate thinking about the institutions and practices of assembling climate in new circles of application, policy and elsewhere. In conclusion, the AA. argue that, rather than understanding climate and society as stable entities with standard (e.g. quantitative) practices or modes of association, we might instead concern ourselves with the practices of assembling human-atmospheric relations.
