Critical History Today: Earth Hunger: Global Integration and the Need for Strangers with Jeremy Adelman

Room G529, 80 Fifth Avenue
General Public 

Join the Historical Studies department, on the second year of our lecture series, Critcal History Today. The themes of which build upon our shared commitment to developing modes of historical analysis that speak to the urgent concerns of the present and that promote rigorous engagement between history and other branches of the humanities and social sciences.

This is the story of a great debate, one that has shaped our times: how humans came to deal with, to embrace and to resist, their dependence upon strangers once local worlds opened up into one interconnected and interdependent world. Interdependence has been the source of hopes and of horrors, of one-world dreaming and of unspeakable atrocities. In our day of climate change and Nation-Firsters, how we handle our fragile togetherness will shape the lives of generations to come. Earth Hunger reflects on this condition; by drawing on experiences and debates from the past, it explores pathways for the future.
