Shipwrecked Concepts and Washed-up Things: Some Lessons the Sea Can Teach Us About the Earth
14:00 on 26 May 2018
City Art Centre
Professor Tim Ingold will draw on the work of Robert Callender to reflect on the state of play in the constant battle between the concept-driven attempts of earthbound humans to impose some order on the world, and the ocean’s capacity to dissolve it. Thanks to human excess, it looks as though the ocean may be winning. Can we strike a new balance?
Tim Ingold is Chair of Social Anthropology at the University of Aberdeen, and Fellow of both the British Academy and the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
