A+RC’s second Summer Intensive addresses ways in which urgent climate issues and anthropogenic effects apply pressure to contemporary cultural production. Seminars range from discussions related to Miami’s immediate conditions to more abstract probing around what it means to think and produce art on a planet that is rapidly changing. With guests as Jason W. Moore and Rozalinda Borcila.

He is author or editor, most recently, of Capitalism in the Web of Life (Verso, 2015), Capitalocene o Antropocene? (Ombre Corte, 2017), Anthropocene or Capitalocene? Nature, History, and The Crisis of Capitalism (PM Press, 2016), and, with Raj Patel, A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things (University of California Press, 2017).
