Caring for the Future Through Ancestral Time

Project: Research Collaboration with external organisation


AHRC-funded project to investigate whether ancestral time can offer an alternative to both economistic and climate apocalyptic temporalities and sustain a greater sense of connection and responsibility between present and future generations.

Layman's description

This project will investigate the contrast between short term temporalities and the long run temporality of ‘ancestral time’ in order to understand and repair the failure of modern industrial societies to mitigate human climate impacts.
