You are invited to a Public Lecture

Professor Dipesh Chakrabarty

'Climate change and the humanities'

Tuesday 16 August 6.00-7.30pm: Room 4k, Level Four, University of Technology Sydney Library, Cnr Quay Street and Ultimo Road, Haymarket

While the phenomenon of planetary climate change is defined primarily by natural scientists and is often addressed, in practical terms, by the policy sciences, this lecture asks: What can the more humanist disciplines - or the humanities, as a branch of thought - contribute to our understanding of the phenomenon and how are they, in turn, challenged by it? The lecture will seek to provide some preliminary and provisional answers to these questions.

Professor Dipesh Chakrabarty is the Lawrence A Kimpton Distinguished Service Professor in History, South Asian Languages and Civilizations, at the University of Chicago. He is also a faculty fellow of the Chicago Center for Contemporary Theory and an associate faculty of the Department of English.

Reception at 6.00pm. This event is free. Further Information: james.goodman at uts.edu.au<mailto:james.goodman at uts.edu.au>

“The quarrels of popes and kings, with wars or pestilences, in every page; the men all so good for nothing, and hardly any women at all—it is very tiresome: and yet I often think it odd that it should be so dull, for a great deal of it must be invention. The speeches that are put into the heroes' mouths, their thoughts and designs—the chief of all this must be invention, and invention is what delights me in other books." (Jane Austen on history, Northanger Abbey)
