Anthropocene Campus 2014

The Anthropocene Issue

What does earthbound knowledge consist of? Which ways of communicating knowledge are appropriate? What does it mean to question the borders between institutionalized disciplines, or even to renegotiate them entirely? From the “geo-political” interactions between desertification and armed conflict, across the mediatization of the Anthropocene, to the resource dependence of an urban system or phenomena of local climate change, using the example of Berlin: by way of concrete case studies, international researchers and university teachers presented an Anthropocene Curriculum developed in transdisciplinary collaboration. At the Anthropocene Campus 2014, this curriculum was simultaneously tested and further developed. A hundred international researchers from the sciences, humanities, and the arts, as well as actors from outside academia engaged in this experiment, contributing their own perspective and expertise.
