Bishnupriya Ghosh and Bhaskar Sarkar: Speculative Futures, Southern Emergences

Starting from the distinction between radical uncertainty and risk (uncertainty tamed in terms of probability theory), this talk offers a conceptual paradigm for two modes of speculation. Ghosh and Sarkar conclude with two instances of what they call “southern emergences” – cultural and political formations materializing from speculative practices in the Global South.

Bishnupriya Ghosh (English) and Bhaskar Sarkar (Film and Media) currently teach at UC Santa Barbara.
