Wednesday February 1st
BRUNO LATOUR: A POLITICS OF THE EARTH with NOORTJE MARRES
Sociologist Noortje Marres, who studied under the late Bruno Latour, will explore his work on ecological politics – in particular his vision for a politics of the earth and his call for a new ecological class to seize the political reins and guide us through the polycrisis. Noortje will also advocate for “ecology” as the best frame through which to re-imagine human society’s relationship with the natural world. And she will chart the rise of a politics of nature as a broad, historical shift in paradigm: one that over the last century has taken the form of a conflict between utopian thinking – the struggle to “burst the existing order” and create a better world – and ideology – which serves to justify the status quo but is no longer in touch with reality.
