Video: The Climate of History in a Planetary Age

Video is now available from a recent webinar launching 3CT fellow Dipesh Chakrabarty’s new book, The Climate of History in a Planetary Age (University of Chicago Press, 2021).

At this event, Chakrabarty joined a panel of scholars at the forefront of exploring the implications of the Anthropocene framework for historical research to consider how climate change upends long-standing ideas of history, modernity, and globalization. Discussants included Elizabeth Chatterjee and Fredrik Albritton Jonsson. Emily Lynn Osborn moderated the conversation.

This event was co-sponsored by 3CT, the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, the Seminary Co-op Bookstores, the University of Chicago Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies, and the University of Chicago Press, and organized as part of the University of Chicago’s Environmental Research and Sustainability initiative.
