Ruptures, Transformations, Continuities. Rethinking Infrastructures and Ecology – Young Researchers Conference 2021

DFG Centre for Advanced Studies "Futures of Sustainability" University of Hamburg

Organizations, institutions as well as everyday life are permeated and characterized by a variety of interests and objectives regarding sustainability. They all relate to sustainability as a strong normative point of reference. However, this complexity of interests and goals associated with the concept of sustainability inevitably gives rise to conflicts, incompatibilities as well as contradictory and paradoxical effects. Looking at ruptures, transformations and continuities, the conference aims to explore the meaning of infrastructures in the context of the ecological crisis and its implications for the multiple futures of sustainability. For further information see the call for papers and the conference program in PDF format.
