Lecture Abstract:

Climate Peace 

The upheaval of the Anthropocene and its intrusion into contemporary life is where we start: how can we articulate what it means to form a polity without an overarching scheme, or what does it means to link it to spaces in deep and rapid transformation. To what extent are we ready to dismantle what appears as the core principle of the Holocene—cohesion and stability, and construct an architecture of peace open on all sides, engaged in constant negotiations and diplomatic encounters.
