Ziauddin Sardar at Bradford Literature Festival
- 21 May 2016
- 15:30 -16:45
- University of Bradford - Great Hall
Ziauddin Sardar and John Sweeney
The ‘postnormal’ or ‘postnormal times’ concept attempts to describe our present time, with all its turbulence, complexity and change. Author and cultural critic Ziauddin Sardar, who developed the concept, describes it as “an in between period where old orthodoxies are dying, new ones have yet to be born, and very few things seem to make sense”.
Join Ziauddin Sardar, consulting editor of ‘Futures’, and John Sweeney, deputy director of the Centre of Postnormal Policy & Futures Studies, for a walk through the postnormal world, where everything we have ever taken for granted and held to be ‘normal’ is now a thing of the past, be it our economic or political systems, the infrastructure of our cities or our perception of our own bodies. What does it mean for us all, and where do we go from here?
