The Cosmopolitan Civil Societies Research Centre at UTS invites you to attend a two day conference entitled “Crisis? Networks, Resilience, Disorder”.

Where: Room 230, Level 1, Building 10, UTS (B10.01.230), Jones Street, Ultimo (a short walk from Central Railway Station)

“Crisis is ubiquitous: state failure, global insurgency, financial collapse, climate emergency. Systemic disorder prevails. What are its dynamics and drivers?  What is the role of disorderly networks?  Who wins from crisis, who loses? Who is resilient, who is vulnerable? This conference aims to explore global crisis as a normal state-of-play, deeply stratified and embedded.”

The conference forms part of a broader project, ‘Chaos, Information Technology, Global Administration and Daily Life’ at CCS: http://cosmopolitancivilsocieties.com
