TUD Announces Conference on "Myths of Disruption: Programs, Narratives, and Utopias"

TUD is thrilled to announce their invitation to the EUTOPIA community, their upcoming conference, "Myths of Disruption: Programs, Narratives, and Utopias," which will take place from December 6th to 8th in Dresden, Germany.

The event will focus on the dynamic concept of disruption and explore the far-reaching implications of mythologies across various disciplines and fields. It will examine how these mythologies shape paradigms such as growth, progress, and the future, all while acknowledging their critique for favouring the few over the many and contributing to environmental, social, and economic instability.

Join us as we explore the intricacies of disruptive innovation, radical change, and creative destruction!

Keynote speakers for this conference:

  • Kylie Crane, Professor of Cultural Studies at the University of Rostock, is a scholar in Ecocriticism and Material Cultures and delves into the fluid boundaries between nature and humanity
  • Adrian Daub, Professor of Comparative Literature and German studies at Stanford University offers insights into disruption from the perspectives of Silicon Valley and gender studies, stating, "Disruption has become a way to tell a story about the meaning of both discontinuity and continuity" (What Tech Calls Thinking, 2020).

Registration is now open on TUD's website, where you can find more information and access our preliminary program. You can download the brochure here
