AGORA: How can we Make Narratives More Plural?

2021.06.09, 13:00–14:30
Get together

History, they say, is written by the victors. But when the dominant narratives (of progress, of markets, of Western-style democracy, etc.) appear exhausted, other narratives and other narrators appear - or just become visible again. We will be reflecting on the value of plurality in narratives. How important is the diversity of narratives, and of those who produce them or engage with them? How can this diversity be increased? What possibilities, and perhaps difficulties, does this plurality generate?

Each meeting will take the form of a recorded conversation, with two participants in charge of kickstarting the discussion. These sessions are open to all. A written synthesis will be produced after each meeting, to serve as a foundation for future actions and projects.
