Idioms of the Post Global
University of Buffalo
March 19-21, 2009

Idioms of the Post GlobalIn this set of workshops, inter-disciplinary scholars, scientists, critics, journalists, and philosophers ask what new conceptual strategies or “idioms,” adhere to a moment we can call “post-global”? The latter applies not only to the recent global credit collapse but the impending set of horizons, today, that seem to break with recent critical projects and humanist assumptions. Particular attention will be paid to recent contributions by Naomi Klein ("The Shock Doctrine"), Joseph Stiglitz, James Galbraith, and Richard Posner to assessing a financial disaster that comprises but one symptomology of an accelerating and expanding rhizome of sociological, ecological, and organizational shifts.
