Can we forge a new political fiction for the Anthropocene out of the emerging new political identities and the discomfort with the old political fictions? While new representations of our planet as a whole and humanity’s place within it are gradually emerging, fewer works attempted to reformulate directly our political fictions. Inho Choi explores a possible alternative political fiction for the Anthropocene by drawing from diplomatic practices in early modern East Asia and their Neo-Confucian political fiction. He suggests that, with a suitable modification, this past philosophy and practice might provide a political fiction that is both as arresting as the old Leviathan and fitted to the challenges of governance at multiple and entangled scales.

This event is co-sponsored by the USC Center on Science, Technology, and Public Life, the Berggruen Institute, and the USC Korean Studies Institute.
