De-globalizations: a Natural History

Dates:
  • Wed 04 Dec 2019 09.30 - 18.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-12-04 9:30 2019-12-05 13:30 Europe/Paris De-globalizations: a Natural History

Deglobalisation is usually approached in political and ideological terms, from a post-colonial and anti-imperialist standpoint, or that of a critique of the new world economic order or cultural globalization. The history of these critiques has often focused on alterglobalist social movements since the 1970s and thus relates more to political science. However, the environmental crisis brought an ecological dimension to the critique, encouraging researchers to adopt a more naturalist point of view while also obliging them to change scale to a more global vision. Inspired by recent works such as Bruno Latour's recent book Down to Earth, by Anna L. Tsing The Mushroom at the end of the World and by Jennifer Grabys's claim to use natural history as a way to rematerialize our relationship towards the globalization process (in her Digital Rubbish), this creative workshop would like to be the opportunity to confront our theoretical imagination at play.
