Beskrivelse

Reflecting on John Urry’s engagement in setting a new agenda for ‘reclaiming the future’ for the social sciences, this talk will discuss the themes of global complexities and mobilities, that were central strands in his thinking, as a still relevant resource for understanding ‘the planet’ as an emergent category and ‘planetarianism’ as a transdisciplinary call for action and thought. In the encounter with ‘the planetary’ the issues of global complexity and mobility provides a pathway to transdisciplinary ways of thinking not just within the social sciences but across art, academia and activism in addressing the key question: how will (and can) we live together (on this planet)
