Sep 16, 2020: Scientific workshop

In the last decades, a number of renowned social theorists announced contradictory
diagnoses for the project of Modernity: modernity was declared to be “ended”, “overcome”,
“transformed”, “radicalized”, and “revived”. Today the concept undergoes major revision as it is
being criticized, discarded, reconsidered and accepted again. The vitality of the debates around
the concept of Modernity testifies to the fact that it remains crucial for our understanding of the
‘modern’ condition. On the other hand, current controversies also highlight the fact that the
concept is more than a theoretical means to account for the modern world; rather, it is a social
construct that is dependent on our present situation and on our critical capacities to deal with it.
Therefore, the question arises who is involved in shaping the new visions of Modernity and who
makes claims to these visions? Which discourses emerge from these new visions of Modernity?
What are the new conceptual constellations in these discourses and who are the new actors of
these debates? Which norms and values will be brought forth?
The workshop seeks to explore these questions from the perspectives of sociology,
political theory, and cultural studies, by launching a public debate on “current imaginaries of
Modernity”.
