Presented By: Dr. Lyn Scott is an Assistant Professor in HSU’s School of Education.

Scholar of The Year Lecture: Sing Chew

Van Duzer Theater
World System History as the Teacher of Life: Global Crises, Dark Ages and System Transformations

Global environmental/economic crises, natural resource scarcity, and climate changes are not new. They have been recurring in long-term phases for the last five thousand years of world history. What can world system history tell us about these recurring phases, and what are the distinct patterns (urbanization/deurbanization, population growth/losses, global migrations, environmental degradation and resource scarcity) that have emerged in terms of processes and structures that have shaped world history? History should not just be an ‘accounting’ of what has transpired, but should also be used to enlighten us and perhaps, even to guide us in personal and policy choices. Awareness of these historical trends and tendencies can help us to anticipate possible ecological futures.
