Apocalypse No, public lecture by Timothy Morton

by CApE

In this public lecture, Timothy Morton will aim for the default apocalypse narrative.

One of the biggest problems with global warming is that we imagine it as the end of the world in some radical, physical sense. We cannot think past it, but thinking past it or with it is exactly what we require to engage with it. Apocalypse is an all too real religious concept, a kind of denouement associated with the meting out of punishment. One way to solve this is to try to resist the idea of an apocalypse. Another is to change it. In this lecture, Professor Timothy Morton will talk about both. The lecture will be followed by a conversation between Timothy Morton and associate professor Rune Graulund.

Place: South Campus, room 23.0.50 (for the lecture) and room 23.0.49 (for live-streaming)
