Worldviews and World Politics – Prasenjit Duara and Bentley Alan

March 5 @ 12:15 pm - 1:45 pm EST

In this talk, Prasenjit Duara and Bentley Allen discuss the role that worldviews play in shaping world politics, focusing particularly on how the background assumptions of the liberal imaginary stimulate environmental degradation. These observations lead them to consider the role that worldview transformation must play in allowing humanity to address the many, pressing crises of the day.

Prasenjit Duara is the Oscar Tang Chair of East Asian Studies at Duke University. He is the author of The Crisis of Global Modernity (2015).

Bentley B. Allan is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University and the author of Scientific Cosmology and International Orders (2018).
