Earthly Entanglements: Politics in the Anthropocene

Australia

Event start: 20190213
End date: 20190214

Event description

Humans are transforming the Earth at an increasingly rapid rate, so much so that many scientists believe that the planet has entered a new epoch: the Anthropocene. This two-day interdisciplinary conference aims to produce new insights on questions such as:

  • How does the Anthropocene alter core challenges for governance, such as achieving justice, democratic legitimacy or sustainable development?
  • What sorts of barriers stand in the way of effective political responses to the Anthropocene, and how could those barriers be overcome?
