Recent work in the energy humanities has offered important new insights into the ways in which energy shapes social practices, cultural values, and political expression. This research has also highlighted the role played by cultural expression in challenging dominant energy narratives and encouraging changed action. What role can this research -- research at the intersection of the fine arts, humanities, and social sciences -- play in naming and explaining the complex struggle currently taking place over the directions of energy transition and the shape of our energy futures?
