Ever-increasing rapid changes are creating powerlessness and resentment as well as new opportunities all over the world. Through the Overheating project, Thomas Hylland Eriksen and several of his colleagues have investigated how globalisation is changing our homes, workplaces and future plans.
The world is overheated. Too full and too fast; uneven and unequal. It is the age of the Anthropocene, of humanity’s indelible mark upon the planet. In short, Thomas Hylland Eriksen refers to globalisation - but not as we know it.
The book forms part of the ERC Advanced Grant project “Overheating”.
