Narratives seem to be everywhere these days. Many thinkers, politicians, activists, artists, etc., call for “new” or “alternative narratives?” - But why, and what for?
Our first questions for this cycle are therefore the following: Why do narratives seem so important? What do they actually do? And what “narratives” are we talking about?
Each meeting will take the form of a recorded conversation, with two participants in charge of kickstarting a structured discussion among participants. 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.
The “initiators” for this sessions are:
- Bodhisattva Chattopadhyay, Associate Professor in Global Culture Studies at the University of Oslo, Norway. He leads the international research group CoFUTURES.
- Dr. Ivana Milojević, Director, Metafuture and Metafuture School.
