    Living with Monsters - Anthropology Symposium

    Monsters are not just part of the popular imaginary, stalking movie screens and the pages of books. They manifest in socio-culturally specific ways across the world, and haunt humans no matter where they live. The symposium draws on two anthropological traditions—an interest in the monstrous and the ethnographic method—in the hope of fostering interdisciplinary dialogue: adding an anthropological voice to discussions currently taking place in the inter-disciplinary field of monster studies.

    The Biosphere Question

    The Earth has reached a tipping point. Runaway climate change, the sixth great extinction of planetary life, the acidification of the oceans–all point toward an era of unprecedented turbulence in humanity’s relationship within the web of life. But just what is that relationship, and how do we make sense of this extraordinary transition?

    In this lecture co-presented by Department of Political Economy, Jason W Moore will challenge the theory and history offered by the most significant environmental concept of our times: the Anthropocene.
