Vortrag von Ulf Hannerz: Writing Futures


9th Eric Wolf Lecture

10. November 2014, 18:00 Uhr // Wien

Wir freuen uns an dieser Stelle nochmals eine sehr herzliche Einladung zur diesjährigen Eric Wolf Lecture auszusprechen.
Professor Dr. Ulf Hannerz von der Universität Stockholm hält den Vortrag zum Thema “Writing Futures: an Anthropologist´s View of Global Scenarios”.

Toward the end of the twentieth century, the Cold War ended and “globalization” became a key word in public discourse. The new configuration allowed people to ask, with relief or anxiety, what might happen next. A small but lively intellectual industry rose to the challenge, creating scenarios for a born-again world. As the world turned, new worlds could be imagined, suggests Ulf Hannerz.
