The Planetary Age of Humans

The category "global" has been widely used to name the historical period that the world supposedly entered when European powers expanded to colonize other peoples' lands, a process that intensified as the centuries wore on. This lecture will argue that with the coming of the phenomena of climate change, global warming, and the so-called Anthropocene, humans have begun to live on the threshold of a different age in human history, one that we could call "planetary" in contrast to the "global." This lecture will develop the distinction between the global and the planetary and elaborate on some of the implications of this distinction.
