CALL FOR PAPERS
Thesis Eleven Sydney Conference
Modernity: Past, Present, Future
Modernity is nothing if not dynamic: mutating as it traverses national boundaries, liquid to the brink of self-negation within them. As such, we moderns find ourselves in the grip of a constantly shifting field of ‘forces,’ ‘logics’ and ‘tensions.’ The object of our study and the horizon of our lives – modernity itself – by its very nature prompts us, once more, to pause and take stock. To ask: who are we, from where have we come, and to where are we going? Organised in honour of Agnes Heller (1929-2019), with a keynote address from Professor Fu Qilin (Sichuan University), China’s preeminent authority on Heller’s work, this conference seeks to bring together those working within the arts, social sciences and humanities to reflect on these issues and think again the past, present and future of modernity.
