About the Event
The heyday of postmodernity is over. But what’s next? How should we understand the social condition that we’re in? Metamodernism is a term that aims to describe our contemporary condition: an age defined by the internet, reinvigorated fanaticism and a new sincerity, among other things. Essentially, metamodernism combines postmodern scepticism with the frenetic vigour of modernism.
Katharine Kavanagh is a writer and academic based in Wales. She is the founder and editor of the Circus Diaries, the digital platform that began as a basic blog in 2013, a lonely outpost for critical comment on circus performance, calling out for companionship and conversation. In the first year, over 12000 visits from more than 100 countries suggested that loneliness was in the past, and the number of readers has continued to grow. Now the Circus Diaries acts as a global treasure and archive for circus writing and documentation praised across the globe.
