Ambivalence, irony and democracy in the Anthropocene

With the lingering taste of Portuguese custard tarts from the road in Britain, I browse through the pages of my newly published piece in Futures. Of the things I have written in recent years, it is perhaps the manuscript that I have come to feel the most for. In it, I have tried to bring alive many of the conversations I have had at conferences and with friends around the world about the future of modernity.

With this manuscript finished, I am thinking of developing some of the key thoughts, in particular the need for broad social investments and accelerated forms of socio-economic globalization, in new papers to be presented during 2013. Before that however, more parental leave with Eddie is on the agenda!
