Genuine Sustainability and Interdisciplinarity through a Planetary Perspective

Date and Time: 8. June 10:00 - 11:00

Location: Unicorn Konferenzraum

Kind of Event: lecture in English

Description: A planetary perspective disregards the modernist distinction between nature and culture as artificial and distorting. Rather, humankind is not a sovereign actor on the stage of nature, but always embedded within an infinity of interrelations between the human and the non-human world. A planetary perspective in science seeks to move beyond anthropocentrism and considers human life not as exceptional but as equal to all other living and non-living entities on earth and thus represents an approach that is genuinely sustainable and interdisciplinary. 

Lecturer: Dr. Maximilian Lakitsch is a Post Doc University Assistant at the Department of Global Governance (Institute of Legal Studies) at the University of Graz. Before that, he worked for development policy and scientific NGOs in Austria and Lebanon and was most recently a research assistant at the Austrian Study Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution at Schlaining Castle. He studied philosophy, theology and international relations and wrote his dissertation at the University of Graz and the American University of Beirut. His research focuses on issues of political power, legitimacy, posthuman politics and religion in international relations and peace and conflict studies. Maximilian's regional focus is on the Middle East and North Africa, in particular Syria, Lebanon and Israel-Palestine.
