From 22 June 2022 to 24 June 2022
The dual health and climate crises confronting humanity and the planet today are unprecedented. These crises are impacting human activity in all its diversity extending across cultural, societal, political, legal, business, economic and educational spheres. In addition to these global phenomena, we have also witnessed national, social (“Black Lives Matter” in the United States, the Afghan crisis…) and political crises (Brexit in the United Kingdom, American insurrection on Capitol Hill in January 2021…). This period evokes representations of real and fictional historical crises. The specter of natural disaster – pandemic, flood, fire, hurricane – and the effects on populations seem to come to life in the media and in the contemporary collective imagination.
