For more than a decade, scholars across fields and disciplines have mobilized the concept of “the Anthropocene” as the framework for their studies, be it in history, culture studies, international relations, or environmental humanities. On the other hand, as of October 2020, neither the International Commission on Stratigraphy nor the International Union of Geological Sciences has officially approved the term as a recognised subdivision of geologic time.
At this seminar, Rachel Douglas-Jones from the IT-University of Copenhagen will invite you to reflect on how the Covid-19 pandemic affects your dissertation work, whether you work ethnographically or textually.

The seminar aims to propose a critical use of these concepts and will show how this critical approach allows for a better understanding of the fields of research. Our approach is as much pragmatic as it is theoretical: how to better understand a field of research, how to fine-tune analyses on topics that have been already largely covered by previous research and how to draw practical conclusions on "hot" current issues.
