Masterclass on the Anthropocene with Victor Galaz

July 2, 2015 in News by Oscar Widerberg

Concepts such as the Anthropocene, Planetary Boundaries, and the Great Accelerationare gaining traction in policy and academia. However, is the “Anthropocene” a useful concept to describe the challenges posed by global environmental change? Is there such as thing as global “thresholds”? Does a “boundaries” framing restrict potential societal responses? In short, is there anything new under the sun?

If you’re curious about these questions, a graduate student or post-doc working on environmental issues from a social science perspective, and available on 1 – 2 October, then you should join our masterclass with Victor Galaz from the Stockholm Resilience Center. It will take place at the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) at the VU University in Amsterdam.
