Sweden in Transition #6 - Amanda Power, on the Anthropocene

av Sweden in Transition | Publicerades 8/7/2019

Amanda Power is professor at Oxford University and historian of religion, power and intellectual life in medieval Europe. She is currently working on a monograph, "Medieval Histories of the Anthropocene", and also just wrote a small daring article « Notre Dame should not be restored – let it stand as a symbol of a flawed way of life ». We talked about the anthropocene and how it is rooted in human history, and discussed the urgency to act, facing the possible collapse of our modern civilisation.
