Panel Discussion: Society in Permanent Crisis?

Veröffentlicht am 14. September 2022, 14:57 Uhr

::Society in Permanent Crisis?::

On the occasion of the 41st Congress of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Soziologie (DGS), which will take place in Bielefeld, the Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS), in cooperation with the Volkshochschule Bielefeld, is organising a panel discussion on 27 September 2022, 6 to 8 p.m., in the Historischer Saal of the Volkshochschule Bielefeld.

 

When crises or disasters occur, they must be responded to and managed. We expect politics, science and other responsible actors (including ourselves) to take countermeasures. Here, disputes can already take place: What is considered a crisis? What is the appropriate countermeasure? What means should or must be used? Can lessons be learned from dealing with previous crises?

At present, a variety of crisis experiences and crisis discourses overlap. Climate crisis, Corona pandemic and war in Ukraine keep shifting the attention of politics, the media and academia. The various crisis scenarios and crisis perceptions compete with each other, they overlap and they are played off against each other. But what does this mean for dealing with crises? Are measures or reforms prevented or made more difficult by this opposition? What does it mean for our own attention and perception of crises when the crisis mode becomes a permanent state?

In an Interdisciplinary Dialogue between sociologists and historians, the mechanisms of social perceptions of crises, crisis management and their transformations will be discussed.

With:

Oliver Dimbath (Professor of Sociology, University of Koblenz-Landau)

Eleonora Rohland (Professor of Environmental History, Bielefeld University,

Markus Schroer (Professor of Sociology, University of Marburg) and

Silke Schwandt (Professor of Digital History, Bielefeld University).

Introduction and moderation: Sabine Schäfer (BGHS) and Dr. Klaus Weinhauer (BGHS).

The Discussion will be in German.

Admission is free.
