Storytelling about climate change at the “Klimagarten 2085”

By Dr. Juanita Schläpfer, ETH Zürich Climate change has been communicated as a global concern affecting all of mankind; but this message doesn’t seem to be getting through. If indeed the human brain responds better to experience than to analysis, then climate change must be told as a local and personal story – just as the Klimagarten 2085 exhibition is doing.

Narrating the Anthropocene

02.07.2015 | Zukunftsblog | Natürliche Ressourcen Von: Dr. Emily Eliza Scott, ETH Zürich | 2 Kommentare Recently, paired events – a lecture by geographer Kathryn Yusoff and a colorful evening “slam” – took place, organized by the fledgling interdisciplinary group, Environmental Humanities Switzerland. Both explored the potential and limits of the “Anthropocene” thesis: the idea that we’ve entered a new geologic epoch wherein humans are actively altering Earth systems.

Anthropocene Slam Keynote Talk by Kathryn Yusoff

In conjunction with the Anthropocene Slam Zurich on May 13, 2015, a keynote talk will be given by Kathryn Yusoff, senior lecturer in human geography at University of London. Adidas Ultra Boost Donna Keynote: 14:30-16:00, UZH Zentrum, Room KO2-F-152, May 13 Anthropocene Slam Zurich: 19:00 – 22:00, ETH Zentrum, Polyterrasse Alumni Pavillion, May 13   Keynote talk abstract: Geopower: genealogy after life The Anthropocene thesis contains within it a notion of geologic planetary agency and thus it furnishes a new mode of subjectivity that is constituted by – and constituting of – geologic forces. After a century of biologic thought, a sharp “turn” is being enacted towards an inchoate geological futurism, and all things mineralogical. Compra Zapatillas Nike This turn, in a biopolitical critique, disputes the dominant tenets of a corporeal materiality (and modernity) that have secured imaginaries of life that enact violence across social and earthly bodies. Soldes Asics 2017 However, if we are to be truly epochal in our thought at all, such a “turn” needs to go beyond biopower to rethink the attendant critiques of those social and political lives. Nike Air Max 2017 Femme While geopower was an explicit, if underdeveloped concept, within Foucault’s thought, its foregrounding within the origination of Anthropocenic Man (sic) requires a far more extensive understanding of the genealogies of what I have been calling “geologic life”. ZOOM ALL OUT Given the centralisation of life as an organising concept within biopolitical thought, the consideration of political subjectivity in the Anthropocene raises the question of what “geopolitics after life” might look like.
