Christian Parenti: Storms and the State: How the Political Economy of Government Will Change in the Age of Climate Crisis (Colloquium Presentation)
April 11th at 5:30 pm (Zimmerman Recital Hall, Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery)
When climate change-related crises like mass flooding hit, people turn to government for assistance. This turn to government happens almost regardless of ideology because only government has the means to respond to the appropriate scale. How a state response reflects its existing capacities and ideological trajectory, but the management of climate disaster and recovery, in turn, reshape the state and politics. In this lecture, Christian Parenti, a contributing editor at The Nation, Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow at The Nation Institute, and author of several critically acclaimed books, including Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and The New Geography of Violence (2011), will explore the political economy of state formation and evolution in relation to environmental disaster.
