“Spatial Figures in the Anthropocene” – The CRC 1265’s 5th international conference

Jonna Josties

What happens to scalar thinking when the analytical distinctions between global and local as well as human and non-human spaces no longer make sense, especially given the engagement with climate change and the planetary in the social sciences and humanities?

All diese Vorstellungen ist eins gemeinsam: Stadien wirken auf Menschen vielfältig oder um ein Wort aus diesem SFB zu verwenden: polykontextural. Was verbirgt sich hinter diesem komplizierten Wort?
