For the Humanity Yet to Come: Anthropology and the Anthropocene 

Work in Progress session with Anand Pandian

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017 | 12:30-2pm | NN 311

Please join us for a work in progress session with Prof. Anand Pandian, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Johns Hopkins University. Prof Pandian will be discussing his essay, ‘For the Humanity Yet to Come: Anthropology and the Anthropocene’, which considers whether recent calls for anthropological attention beyond the human have forfeited too quickly the idea of humanity as a horizon of moral and political transformation. The essay takes up three fields – politics, art, and fiction – for ethnographic examination, tracking the pursuit of a more expansive sense of humanity by indigenous activists at the 2016 World Conservation Congress; in the efforts of two American artists to conjure the future imprint of our plastic obsessions; and in the modes of being and expression inspired by the novels of Ursula K. Le Guin. Please contact Mabel Gergan to RSVP mdg109@georgetown.edu
