A conversation with Dipesh Chakrabarty
A conversation with PROFESSOR DIPESH CHAKRABARTY
(Chicago, Visiting Fellow Sydney Environment Institute, University of Sydney)
In association with the Laureate Research Program in International History and Sydney Ideas.
‘If, indeed, globalization and global warming are born of overlapping processes, the question is, How do we bring them together in our understanding of the world?’
In his pathbreaking essays on ‘Climate and Capital’, Dipesh Chakrabarty has opened up the exploration of the implications of the science of climate change for historical and political thinking. In this conversation, professors Glenda Sluga and David Schlosberg take up the themes of Dipesh Chakrabarty’s work, to ask: What value does history have in tackling and understanding the political, social, cultural, and economic challenges posed by climate change? Can we reconcile the imperatives of capitalism and the objectives of tackling climate change?
