Public lecture and launch: Dipesh Chakrabarty, ‘The Human and the Geological: On Anthropocene Time’

Professor Dipesh Chakrabarty will present this public lecture at the official launch of the Climate Justice Research Centre. ‘The Human and the Geological: On Anthropocen Time’, introduced by Professor Mary Spongberg in her role as Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, will discuss how distinctly geological and sociological ideas undergo mutual translation in current debates on climate change, climate justice, and the idea of the Anthropocene. Professor Chakrabarty will investigate the relationship between our contemporary imaginations of world history and the history of the planet. 

Professor Dipesh Chakrabarty, from the University of Chicago, is currently working on The Climate of History (Routledge) and Anthropocene in Fuelling Culture (Fordham).
