In recent years, the critique of ‘globalists’ has become a part of politicians’ repertoire both on the left and the right. This talk inquires the theoretical foundations for this critique and explains the changed attitudes towards ‘the global’. Referring to these recent critiques of ‘globalism’, the talk situates different understandings of globality and how they shape ethical considerations. It traces the changing imaginaries of globality during the last decades and how they have been influencing the perceptions about ‘our’ responsibility towards ‘others’ in surprising ways.

The event will start with a lecture and then commence as an open discussion. The lecture will be delivered by Felix Anderl. Felix is a postdoctoral research associate at CRASSH where he works on the ARTEFACT project, and as a member of the Centre for Global Knowledge Studies (gloknos).

This talk is part of the University of Cambridge Festival of Ideas 2019.
