The work of historical geographer and environmental historian Jason W. Moore has great relevance for climate activists. Moore will be giving a series of three free evening lectures, all open to the public, on April 11, 12, and 13. Topics for the three nights are:
- April 11: Nature and ‘Empire of Man’: Dualism, Dialectics, and the World-Ecological Imagination
- April 12: Anthropocene, Capitalocene, and the Origins of Our Ecological Crisis
- April 13: The End of Cheap Nature? Cheap Food, Runaway Finance, and the Deadly Climates of Capital
Jason W. Moore is associate professor of Sociology at SUNY at Binghamton. He is the author or editor of seven books, most recently Anthropocene or Capitalocene? (PM Press, 2016), Capitalism in the Web of Life (Verso, 2015), and with Raj Patel, A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things (University of California Press, 2017). His work is dedicated to undoing the opposition between labor and environment and developing a unified theory of exploitation that draws equally on Marxism, feminism and race theory. He coordinates the World-Ecology Research Network and blogs at https://jasonwmoore.wordpress.com/. Many of his essays are available at www.jasonwmoore.com. You can listen to a recent interview with Sash Lilly on KPFA here.
Please RSVP so the sponsor can get an accurate headcount, but please come even if the event appears closed! No one will be turned away at the door.
