London’s Burning: Our Habitat in Times of Crisis

Contemporary discussions of the crisis of global capitalism
depict the city as a locus of particular vulnerability; the centre of a pattern
of intersecting and mutually reinforcing calamities. London’s Burning aims to
capture what is seen as the emergence of a new historical consciousness of
crisis, and offer a collective critical reflection on its workings. The
discussion is the result of a group of researchers forming a creative and constructive
dialogue between disciplines, in what has recently been described as a
‘politics of microspection’.
Led by Florian Mussgnug, the contributors will
deliberately adopt the standpoint of the local, the habitat, and explore how
the sites of our daily life in London – our private and shared spaces, images,
stories – can point the way to a new experience of the planet.
