Earthly entanglements: politics in the Anthropocene

Wed 13 February 2019 to Thu 14 February 2019Conveners: Dr Jonathan Pickering and Professor John DryzekVenue: Ann Harding Conference Centre, Building 24, University of Canberra

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?
