Workshop The Anthropocene: Challenging the Disciplines

Ort: Sky Lounge der Universität Wien, Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 1
Zeit: 8.4.2019, 9.00 - 18:00

Originally coined by the natural sciences, the concept of the Anthropocene is rapidly gaining traction in the humanities and social sciences. It has unleashed an array of debates as well as critical disciplinary self-reflection in many academic fields. The Anthropocene calls for new forms of dialogue across disciplinary and epistemological boundaries. Exposing the inadequacy of certain traditional disciplinary distinctions, the Anthropocene has also forged unprecedented forms of cooperation and alliances between the disciplines. But what should be the basis of this new dialogue? We believe that such a dialogue will have to go not only beyond the confines of our respective disciplines but also beyond traditional ideas of inter- and trans-disciplinarity.

The workshop will address these questions regarding the re-thinking of academic disciplines in the light of the Anthropocene.
