Panel Discussion of Professor Dipesh Chakrabarty's book "The Climate of History in a Planetary Age"

When: Wednesday, September 29, 2021, 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Where: Online Zoom

Speaker: Professor Dipesh Chakrabarty

The Queen Mary Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences welcomes Professor Dipesh Chakrabarty to a panel discussion of his recent book, The Climate of History in a Planetary Age. In this bold work Chakrabarty invites us to see ourselves from two perspectives at once: the (human-centred) global and the (human-decentred) planetary. The consequence of doing so, which Chakrabarty explores in this work, forces us to reconsider everything from the nature of human agency to literature to humanism itself. As the geological intrudes upon social life, we must take stock and rethink our way forward. Join us online for this public event, featuring responses by Queen Mary faculty members Chris Moffat and Shital Pravinchandra.
