Environment and climate have turned into prime historical and contemporary arenas of articulation of a new Weltanschauung with rapidly changing understanding of human agencies, the politics of scale, and the synchronization of planetary and societal temporalities. Observing the significance of geo-forcing powers of human societies and economies, we can talk of an emerging new human-earth relationship, for which diplomatic and political tools are in grave mismatch with Earth System realities, and often also with popular perceptions, adding to mounting social and political polarization.

Critical Globality

Forelæsningsrække

Critical Globality is a new lecture series at Roskilde University. At a time when global questions radically increase in importance, we need to ask questions about how ‘the global’ can best be understood. With three invited speakers per semester, Critical Globality will engage international scholars in a conversation about historical and contemporary iterations of global connections, networks, economies and politics.
