Beyond Terricide: Envisioning paths for pluriversal transitions

2021.02.09 | Marius Marques Siersbæk

Date Wed 24 Feb
Time 15:00 17:00
Location Aarhus University via Zoom


This talk discusses six axes or principles for “civilizational transitions” towards a pluriverse, based on the principle of radical relationality. These principles concern the re-communalization of social life; the re-localization of productive activities; the strengthening of autonomy; the depatriarchalization, de-racialization and decolonization of social relations; the re-integration with the Earth; and the construction of meshworks among transformative alternatives.  These principles are discussed in terms of their implications for anthropology and design.
