Anthropocene, Capitalocene, & the Origins of Our Ecological Crisis 4/12

AnthropoceneOrCapitalocne.jpgThe California Institute of Integral Studies regularly hosts fascinating scholars from around the world in their visiting scholar lecture series. Coming up, their 3-part series with Jason W. Moore is something that promises to be very thought-provoking for climate change activists. 

Jason Moore is a world historian, world ecologist, and professor at Bingham University. Moore edited Anthropocene or Capitalocene? Nature, History, and the Crisis of Capitalism, and is the author of Capitalism in the Web of Life: Ecology and the Accumulation of Capital.

Each of Moore's talks will be audio-recorded, transcribed, and later published in a forthcoming book. The lectures take place in the CIIS Desai Matta Lobby Gallery on April 11th, 12th, and 13th from 7-9pm each night. Here are the titles of the talks:

  • April 11th, Nature and ‘Empire of Man': Dualism, Dialectics, and the World-Ecological Imagination
  • April 12th, Anthropocene, Capitalocene, and the Origins of Our Ecological Crisis
  • April 13th, The End of Cheap Nature? Cheap Food, Runaway Finance, and the Deadly Climates of Capital

Please register here free of charge so CIIS can get an accurate headcount, but please come even if the event appears to be sold out! No one will be turned away at the door.
