Thematic Projects at the Center for Emerging Worlds

The overarching topic of the project is Imperial Entanglements, which we will explore for the first three years through programming on three themes.  Through this overarching theme, we will look at historical and contemporary worlds that have been created through cultural encounters, the end of the Cold War and postsocialism, global religious movements, environmental dilemmas and so on.  We will consider how these emergent worlds both create new forms of inequality while also offering new possibilities for resolving them.
