Tokyo College Lecture: Globalisation, Empires, and the Making of the Modern World”

 
Date May 13, 2022
Venue Tetsumon Memorial Hall, Faculty of Medicine Experimental Research Bldg. (University of Tokyo, Hongo Campus)
Overview This talk describes three phases of globalisation that have occupied the last five centuries and their role in making the world we know today. The first two phases were associated with the rise of Western empires, which integrated large parts of the world through a process of compulsory globalisation. The third phase, which began after 1945, brought empires to an end and produced the current world order and disorder.

Tokyo College Lecture: “Trade war, global pandemic, Ukraine: What we know, and don’t know, about the new political and economic order”

 
Date May 10, 2022
Venue Tetsumon Memorial Hall, Faculty of Medicine Experimental Research Bldg. (University of Tokyo, Hongo Campus)
Overview Recent years have featured the US-China trade war, the coronavirus pandemic, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, each of which we can consider “radically uncertain” events that were not in any real sense predictable. This lecture seeks to identify how these events fit into conventional frameworks for explaining the world, how these events might have changed that framework, what elements of the framework remain unknown, and how we should respond to this age of uncertainty.
