Third International Symposium

Big History and

Global Evolution

Moscow, September 26–28, 2017

The 1st announcement

On September 25–29, 2017 Lomonossov Moscow State University will hold the International Congress Globalistics-2017. In the framework of this congress, the Eurasian Center for Big History & System Forecasting in collaboration with the Faculty of Global Processes at Lomonossov Moscow State University is organizing the 3rd International Symposium ‘Big History & Global Evolution’.

Big History is a relatively new field of study. It is a synthesis of disciplines from the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, one that seeks to explore overarching trends that stretch across all existence for 13.8 billion years, – based on the most current scholarly thinking. The definition adopted by the International Big History Association is as follows: ‘Big History is the attempt to understand, in a unified and interdisciplinary way, the history of the cosmos, earth, life and humanity.’

Similar to Big History, the macroevolutionary approach seeks to develop an inclusive view of the cosmos, earth, life and humanity by erasing boundaries between disciplines, and that is why we have decided to organize a symposium dealing with Big History and Global Evolution as a unified whole.

The symposium will address a wide range of topics, such as:

· How Big History Works

· Interdisciplinary Development of Big History

· Understanding Big History and Evolution

· Big History Patterns, Trends, & Regularities

· Big History, Global Evolution, and Complexity Studies

· Evolution of the Universe

· Evolution of the Earth

· Evolution of Life

· Social Evolution

· Different Forms of Evolution: Connections and Comparisons

· Globalization within the Context of the Global Evolution

· Forecasting Global Future

· Big History Trends and Phases

· Teaching Big History
