Hi my name is David, The London School of Economics run a series of free public lectures which are always well informed, engaging and entertaining. Speakers last year included experts such as Fabrizio Saccomanni the Minister of Economy and Finance in the Italian Government, members of The Bank of England, IMF, ECB and Borris Johnson (OK maybe they are not all experts).
I try to attend a few lectures every week. My number is[masked] please send me a text if you would like to meet up afterwards for a drink.
Seats are filled on a first come basis so I would advise to arrive at least 20 minutes before the lecture is due to start.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Details for this lecture are: LSE PUBLIC LECTURE: How Climate Change Might Save the World
Department of Sociology public lecture
Date: Thursday 27 February 2014 Time:[masked]pm Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Professor Ulrich Beck
Chair: Professor Mike Savage
Public discourse and politics of climate change are blocked by the dominance of apocalyptic imaginaries and by the inability of sociological thinking to analyse the transformation of politics and to imagine new openings. To combat the sources of climate pessimism, we need a new cosmopolitan outlook, in research and politics, capable of grasping the epochal transformations of society and politics set in motion by the global risks of climate change.
Ulrich Beck is professor of sociology at the University of Munich and visiting professor in the Department of Sociology at LSE.
Mike Savage (@MikeSav[masked]) is head of the Department of Sociology at LSE.
