No one expected in 2014 that Arthur would be our ambassador to Brazil. His work on animal subjectivity and nature came after the call of the first conference, and the love for Chile (and a Chilean colleague), have him traveling from the gigantic Brazil to the Andean perisphere of Chile several times a year, collaborating with several members of the net. A similar history of transitions has Cecilia, specializing in governance of socio-environmental systems, has been found between Sussex and Santiago at various times. Both not only change location, but multiply, intellectually, emotionally and humanly in their contributions to our network. Participation, commitment and passion has no temporo-spatial barriers. Although the notion of Center-periphery is central to the Latin American tradition of CTS, the ambivalence of globalization and the anthropocene forces us to face a multiplicity of simulatory centers and perispheres. These constellations cannot be mapped by GoogleMaps or traversed in Uber, if not what measures in love, as the initial song of the musical RENT says.
"Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?
In daylights, in sunsets In midnights, in cups of coffee
In inches, in miles In laughter, in strife
In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in the life"
What geographic & temporal context does this innovation emerge out of?
