Literary Studies and Sociology in Dialogue - How Imaginaries Shape Social Reality
Hartmut Rosa (Jena/Erfurt) and Elisabeth Herrmann (Warwick)
Moderator: Irina Hron (Copenhagen)
Public Event at Jonsered Manor, Gothenburg
Monday, 27th March, 13:00-16:00 (CET)
How does social reality come into being? Where do social impulses originate and how do they enter the public sphere?
Imaginaries are at least partly constitutive for what societies are, how they develop, how they are modified and continuously negotiated. Fictional stories, whether in the form of literary texts, visual media, or music and lyrics, can be catalysts for social transformation by reflecting the present from alternative viewpoints, including looking back at the past and imagining possible futures. Fictional stories turn imaginings into possibilities, taking them into the world, bringing them to mind and prototyping possible social realities through images and narration, figures and plots. How do social imaginaries emerge? How does fiction contribute to social transformation – and how are social transformations reflected in social imaginaries? What is social energy and how is it set in motion?

GHCC PG blog
As you may be aware, the Global History and Culture Centre has run a series of blog posts showcasing postgraduate research in global history. You can find the posts here. Following the success of previous paid initiative, we would like to issue another call for contributions. Each successful applicant will be paid a maximum of £250 for their contribution (based on a short-term appointment via Unitemps) upon the publication of a short blog entry, to be written by you, about a topic of your choice. This might be related to your research, or something tangentially connected to your research, or a reworked part of an essay you have already submitted, but it might also review a relevant book or feature an interview. The choice is yours, but you need to make a case to us why this is a suitable piece to publish on our GHCC blog. If you can explain in which way your proposed piece is global, this will count in your favour, but we accept a broad interpretation of what constitutes ‘the global’. The piece should be short (c. 1,000 words) and should have some images, a short blurb and a brief bio statement attached. Please submit your applications no later than Monday 27 February 2023.
An application form can be found here, please submit it to Amy.Evans@warwick.ac.uk
