Resonance beyond Growth: The Good Life in Postgrowth Societies

portrait of Hartmut Rosa with date and time

This conference presents an analysis of modern society that explains the structural features which lead into this escalatory cycle that systematically requires growth, innovation and acceleration. It identifies the corresponding cultural "imperatives for growth" that translate the structural requirement of growth, acceleration and innovation into a strategic necessity in the human's search for a good life. Third, it presents an alternative conception of the good life, based on the concept of resonance, which also proves to be an indispensable tool for a critique of social conditions, and a key ingredient to build post-growth societies.

The conference will be in English. Translation into French will be provided.


This event is supported by The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
