King's College London School of Global Affairs - University of North Carolina Curriculum in Global Studies Workshop

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


From wars, natural disasters, and debt to climate catastrophe, the pandemic, and mass displacement, our world has faced multiple crises in the last decade. This workshop aims to explore some of these crises in order to identify how responses to them might be similar, different, and inter-linked across societies. Scholars have viewed crisis as enabling capitalist accumulation and profit-making, as an event that shapes politics and space, and as an ever-present condition that we live in. This work has also pointed to how crisis disrupts existing patterns and relations and can create openings for individual, collective, or institutional actors to build new political, economic, social, and ecological formations instead. This workshop aims to analyze this potential and whether the multiple crises we face today might stimulate action to reconfigure established social hierarchies and political ideologies and enable building more just futures.

This workshop will bring together Master's and PhD students from King's College London and the University of North Carolina, with faculty to explore emergent ideas and research.
