Modernization

6, May 2010  |  Published : Seminars  | 

This seminar wants to be a break-through from the traditional lecture model, by the direct manifestation of its subject. Recent technologies are thus applied to valorize a collective modern intelligence at work.

Diverging from the tradition wich tries to define from Baudelaire to Walter Benjamin what is « modernity », this seminar asks itself what is « modernization », within an original framework and challenging views.

Guests from various fields (philosophs, historians, artists) are successively asked three question :

  • What is modernity ?
  • What is modernization ?
  • What is post-modernity ?

As their answers are collected, they are recorded, indexed, tagged and put online so that the debate may profit from the new models of auto-production and user-generated content where participants log in and take positions through consensus or dissensus with the views displayed.

This enables the emergence of a searchable and open database..
