INHUMANISM: Narrative Engineering, Finance and Cognition in a State of Collapse
Tue 08 Oct 2019,19:00-21:00

Terence Sharpe will present a two part lecture, one part on his research into humanism as a historical and political category, and analysing what inhumanism can present in terms of narrative engineering, finance and cognition in relation to climate collapse.

The second part will be a conversation with Christine Lariviere who works in digital communications and data work for EIT Climate-KIC, Europe’s leading climate innovation organisation. They will discuss the complexity of climate change mitigation at scale, the importance of financial restructuring/incentivisation and the role of technology in world making through geo-engineering.
