Social Justice in the GeoHumanities Working Group: Discussion of Dipesh Chakrabarty’s The Climate of History in a Planetary Age
This working group seeks to explore the ways in which the nascent field of GeoHumanities (born of the intersections between geography, geology and the humanistic inquiries in history, culture, literature, media and art) reckons with issues of social justice, such as racial capitalism, urban practices of redlining, asymmetrical global development and environmental degradation, poverty, climate-and war-related population displacements, among others.

The Levan Institute for the Humanities supports interdisciplinary working groups with the goal of fostering intellectual exchange and advancing research on topics in the humanities (broadly construed) that are not already addressed by an existing department or program. Working groups are primarily addressed to faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students. They may involve participants at other institutions.
