  • kann von externen Interessierten via ZOOM-Link besucht werden
  • wird in englischer Sprache durchgeführt
  • Sie erhalten pro Vorlesung eine kurze Intro + eigenen ZOOM-Link zugesandt
  • Die jeweiligen Vorträge der Referent*Innen werden aufgezeichnet und auf der Website Forum Anthropozän zur „Nachlese“ veröffentlicht

Eine interdisziplinäre Online-Ringvorlesung zum Thema Anthropozän mit nationalen und internationalen Vortragenden aus den Naturwissenschaften, den Sozialwissenschaften und den (bildenden) Künsten beleuchtet das Anthropozän aus unterschiedlichen Gesichtspunkten.

Das Anthropozän stellt eine Herausforderung für viele akademische Fachdisziplinen dar. Als ein mögliches neues geologisches Zeitalter definiert es die Beziehung des Menschen zum Planeten in ökologischer Hinsicht neu, mit Konsequenzen für historische, soziale und ethische Aspekte. Das Vienna Anthropocene Network bringt Geistes- und Naturwissenschaften zusammen und umfasst Wissenschaftler*innen aus den Bereichen Geologie, Geographie, Biowissenschaften, Geschichte, Philosophie, Politikwissenschaft, Literatur- und Kulturwissenschaften, STS, Anthropologie und einer Reihe von weiteren Studienrichtungen. Das Internationale Forum Anthropozän ist eine Plattform, die sich transdisziplinär dem Thema Anthropozän in der Wechselwirkung von Globalität, Urbanität und dem Ländlichen Raum widmet.

Im Rahmen der aktuellen, interdisziplinären Ringvorlesung werden neue Blickwinkel auf Natur, Kultur und Gesellschaft geworfen. Diesmal, neben Beiträgen zur Geologie und Permafrost, mit Fokus auf soziale und künstlerische Aspekte, sowie auf Nachhaltigkeit und eine afrikanische Perspektive des Anthropozäns. Wir freuen uns, dass wir diesmal viele Beiträge von Referentinnen präsentieren und besonders jungen Wissenschaftlerinnen eine Plattform bieten können.

Die Ringvorlesung ist eine Kooperationsveranstaltung des Vienna Anthropocene Network (VAN), des Instituts für Geologie und des UNESCO IGCP 732 Projektes der Universität Wien, gemeinsam mit dem Forum Anthropozän, gefördert durch das 1. Europäische Klima- und Umweltbildungszentrum/Nationalpark Hohe Tauern (Kärnten).

Biodiversity in China and beyond

Dr. Jinfeng Zhou is the Secretary-General of China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF), a leading independent environmental NGO based in China. Graduated from Peking University and Purdue University, where Zhou obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry and Post Doctorate in Physics, he was a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) for the ninth, tenth and eleventh session, Standing committee member of the All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, and Vice-Chair of the National Association of Vocational Education China (NAVEC) for the ninth and tenth session.
He is also an Executive Committee Member of the Club of Rome, a member of the World Commission on Environmental Law (WCEL) of IUCN, and an expert of the Global Pact for the Environment, an expert to the ISO/TC 331 on Biodiversity, and a researcher at the Theoretical Research Base of Environmental Justice of the Supreme People's Court of China. Zhou believes the most important environmental challenges are the intertwined crises of biodiversity loss, climate change and public health. They are co-related and should be addressed in a holistic way.

Mires as a critical Earth component during the Anthropocene

I am an environmental geochemist, studying broadly understood human impact on the Earth; more particularly I am a peat geochemist. I use peat as environmental medium to assess the pathways and levels of past pollution. Currently, I am the PI of an Opus 14 project entitled: „EARTH - Anthropocene - Rare earth elements, isotopes and anthropogenic particulates long-range transport in Northern Hemisphere – implications for defining Anthropocene”. This project aims to determine the global patterns of deposition of geochemical and mineralogical proxies in different peatlands of the Northern Hemisphere (NH). Their application to define the new period will be assessed. The international network between Poland, Russia, China, Iceland, Estonia has been developed for better recognition of local and global deposition pathways of investigated markers.

The impact of agriculture on the environment and potential solutions

Eric Bönecke works as postdoctoral researcher at the Leibniz Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops - IGZ in Grossbeeren, Germany. The studied geographer and soil scientist researches on improving fertilization recommendations towards a sustainable agriculture. Therefore, he combines tools of proximal soil sensing, digital soil mapping, agro-ecological modeling and decision support systems to gain and process agronomic relevant information – most important: the soil particle size distribution and the soil organic matter content.
