The Future is Global: Role of The New School
Tuesday, April 16, 2019 at 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm
Eugene Lang College Building, Wollman Hall, B 500 65 West 11th Street , New York, NY 10011
The Global Platform committee invites you to a round table discussion to celebrate the launch of the Global at The New School website.
The future of the world will be increasingly ‘global’. Change will not be a homogeneous linear trend of increasing integration but rather, globalization will take multiple forms and proceed in different directions, generating different types of interactions and conflicts between peoples, geographies, politics, and societies. We are at a hinge moment. It is time for new thought and action, theory and praxis. What will be the role of The New School?
Moderated by Sakiko Fukuda-Parr, Director of the Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs and Professor of International Affairs at The New School.
- Introduction by Tim Marshall, Provost and Chief Academic Officer, The New School
- Joel Towers and Timon McPhearson on environmental justice
- Diana Ayton-Shenker and Carin Kuoni on human rights and genders
- Sheba Tejani and Gustav Peebles on inequalities
- Sean Jacobs on decolonizing knowledges
