Dr Iris H. Casteren van Cattenburch, independent communications strategist in the field of water management, mobility and logistics, and a research affiliate at Utrecht University. I am an enterprising scholar, mother, daughter, wife and lover, 21st century mythographer and allegorist. I am inspired by family, friends and colleagues, ancient and early modern writers, philosophers, historians and every other artist pursuing the quest of life. I am intrigued by the vast possibilities of technology and biology and concerned with the human dimension of changing space. I think, write and speak on the reciprocity between sustainability and the arts.
Research focus areas: hermeneutics, narrative ethics, sustainability, action-based learning; sensemaking, organizational symbolism and learning; organizational narratives and scenario-thinking.
