Jonatan Palmblad

Jonatan Palmblad is a cross-disciplinary scholar primarily focusing on the workings of human–environment interaction, and the role that psychology and technology play therein. He is a PhD candidate in Environmental Humanities affiliated with the Rachel Carson Center for Environment & Society, LMU Munich, and is currently a writing-up fellow at the KLI. In his dissertation, Jonatan looks at the public intellectual and self-proclaimed generalist Lewis Mumford (1895–1990), who early on engaged with the problems later framed as the Anthropocene, using him as a prism to understand present and future issues from the standpoint of the past. Jonatan's interdisciplinarity encompasses, but is not limited to, philosophy, history of ideas, history of technology, human ecology, ecocriticism, and environmental psychology. He has a B.A. in Liberal Arts and an M.A. in History of Science and Ideas from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
