Exploring "Apocalypse" In The 21st Century

Description

David F. Putnam Science Center, Room 154
Exploring 'Apocalypse' In The 21st Century. These papers investigate and analyze different components of apocalyptic thinking by combining independent research with contemporary media pieces. Each paper answers a central question regarding the idea of 'apocalypse' in the 21st century. Is there any deeper meaning behind the apocalypse? What morals would we need to preserve in a post-apocalyptic world? Is America's indifference toward fossil fuel consumption leading to an irreversible environmental apocalypse? These questions are key in understanding and appreciating the impact that apocalyptic thinking has on our culture. Collectively, these papers provide broad insight into why the idea of 'apocalypse' has captivated humanity.
