Workshop (09.12.2022): ‚Was hält die Demokratie zusammen?

Die „Großen Herausforderungen“, wie die Folgen des Klimawandels, die Frage nach Mobilität und Migration sowie die rasanten Veränderungen der Gesellschaft durch Digitalisierung und Künstliche Intelligenz betreffen alle Menschen. Die Frage nach der angemessenen Wahrnehmung, Beschreibung, und Deutung dieser Phänomenkomplexe ist zentral, denn bereits ihre Semantisierung formiert durch die Nutzung bestimmter Konzepte, Kategorien, Sprachbilder und Wertungsmuster mögliche Akteur*innen und Handlungsräume. Verschiedene Semantisierungen führen so zu jeweils bestimmten Vorstellungen von Agency und Integrität innerhalb der aufgemachten Zukunftsszenarien. Genau dieses Verhältnis soll im Projekt untersucht werden. Innovativ ist dabei die analytische Verbindung der Begriffe Semantisierung, Agency und Integrität. Diese werden als sich im Wechselverhältnis gegenseitig konstituierend verstanden, wodurch das Prozesshafte des Ringens um eine adäquate Zukunftsbeschreibung herausgearbeitet und konzeptualisiert werden kann.
