Stefanie Wöhl at “Postwachstumskolleg” Workshop at the University of Jena, Germany, 20th to 22nd September 2017

The “Postwachstumskolleg” at the University of Jena, Germany, is organizing a workshop on Democratization and prospects of degrowth. This is how they describe their work on their HP. “Our research programme addresses the sociological diagnosis of a series of social changes and crisis phenomena which, in their entirety, question the growth-based regime of modern societies. Modern capitalist imperatives of structural dynamisation are called into question: The logics of incessant Landnahme, acceleration, and activation constitute a long-term threat to economic, ecological and social reproduction that is historically unprecedented.” For more Information please see    where you can also find the program of the workshop.
