Catastrophe: Dialogues On Storytelling And The Present Moment?Part 2, Climate Change & Sacred Grov
Static Preview

Please join The Commonwealth Club of California and UC Berkeley’s Townsend Center for the Humanities for the second in a series of dialogues on catastrophe, storytelling and the present moment. In “Climate Change and Sacred Groves,” Townsend Center scholar Sugata Ray will meet with visual artist Ranu Mukherjee to investigate the relationship between the natural world and the sacred realm, especially as it has developed in India over the last several centuries of civilization and the rise of the Anthropocene era.

In his most recent book, Climate Change and the Art of Devotion, Sugata shows how a site-specific and ecologically grounded theology emerged in northern India in the wake of the Little Ice Age (ca. 1550–1850), an epoch marked by climatic catastrophes across the globe. His interests dovetail in unexpected and compelling ways with Ranu’s visionary and captivating recent work, which positions the banyan tree as a meeting point between ecology and culture. Their conversation will be an opportunity for viewers to contemplate and rethink the role of art as it relates to contemporary concerns around climate, disease, human flourishing and the sacred.

Sugata Ray is associate professor of South and Southeast Asian art in the History of Art Department at the University of California, Berkeley. His research and writing focus on climate change and the visual arts from the 1500s onward. Ray is the author of Climate Change and the Art of Devotion: Geoaesthetics in the Land of Krishna, 1550–1850 (2019); Water Histories of South Asia: The Materiality of Liquescence (2019; coedited); and Ecologies, Aesthetics, and Histories of Art (forthcoming; coedited).

Ranu Mukherjee is a visual artist who makes paintings, animations and large-scale installations. Her current work focuses on shifting senses of ecology, non-human agency, diaspora, migration and transnational feminist experience. Her most recent installation was presented at the ecologically focused 2019 Karachi Biennale; she has exhibited solo at the San Jose Museum of Art, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Asian Art Museum, and the de Young Museum. She is an associate professor in graduate fine art at the California College of the Arts. Mukherjee is represented by Gallery Wendi Norris.

Prospects for Global Coordination in an Age of Pandemics and Emerging Climate Technologies
Static Preview

Much like efforts to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, combatting climate change requires cooperation on a global scale. And yet the history of international climate negotiations shows just how difficult that cooperation can be.

At the same time, new technologies to alter the climate are emerging, posing their own challenges to multilateralism. What, if anything, can we learn from the global response to the pandemic that might aid us in governing new, climate-altering technologies? What functions and mechanisms are needed? How important is leadership in not only responding to, but anticipating and preparing for these global challenges? What role do ethics play in governance decisions?

These are challenges the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G) knows well. Their work is focused on catalyzing the creation of effective and inclusive governance for emerging technologies that would seek to deliberately alter the one atmosphere we all share. For the past three years, they've met with senior decision-makers around the world in national governments, the UN system and civil society, urging them to explore questions such as risk management and transparent global monitoring and reporting before events overtake.

Thelma Krug: Governing Emerging Marine Climate-Altering Techniques
Static Preview

On 7 December 2019, C2G convened an official UNFCCC COP25 side event on governing emerging marine climate-altering techniques. Thelma Krug, Vice Chair, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), participated in a panel discussion.

The research and potential use of marine climate-altering techniques are being discussed in the context of the Paris agreement and the ocean’s role in achieving it. None of these techniques are ready at scale. All pose significant technological and governance challenges, which need to be addressed and require the attention of stakeholders.
