Extended Seminar Programme across the School of Culture and Society, Aarhus University
In the Autumn 2023, there will be a range of open academic events across the School of Culture and Society related to the theme “A New History of Humanity?”, including workshops, reading groups, talks and discussions – and as a final event – a Futures Lecture at Moesgaard Museum.
The idea is to spur leading international researchers, PhD and postdoctoral fellows and students across the humanities and beyond to explore the implications and ideas presented in the work The Dawn of Everything (2022) written by the British Archeologist, David Wengrow, and the late American anthropologist and activist, David Graeber.
