3rd Annual Graduate Conference by the Cluster of Excellence

The dynamics of normative orders - persistence, motion, rupture

18-19 November 2011, Goethe-University, Frankfurt am Main

This year’s Graduate Conference will take place from 18-20th November in Frankfurt/Main. It is dedicated to the dynamics of normative orders and aims at bringing together graduate students and junior researchers in disciplines such as philosophy, law, political science, history, anthropology, economics, sociology, and religious studies.

Normative orders, which legitimize the basic structures of societies and the interaction between societies, appear in various constellations, which range from codified rules to informal mechanisms of regulation. At the same time, orders shall not be thought of as being static, as they actually reside between persistence, motion and break-up. It is exactly those dynamics that will be in the focus of the Graduate Conference. In three sections (persistence, motion, rupture) we will ask:

What does set (normative) orders in motion and when is there rupture (when can one actually speak of ‘broken orders’)? What is the relation between a change of norms and the dynamic of a normative order? How, under what conditions and whit which effect do orders influence each other? And what does the stability or change of normative orders imply for their legitimacy?

This year's guiding theme will be discussed in a total of 12 interdisciplinary panels, which are compiled into the 3 sections 'persistence', 'motion', and 'rupture', with contributions of more than 50 graduates from national and international universities.

There is no conference fee. We are looking into possibilities to provide a limited number of travel grants to participants, but currently we are unable to make any commitments.
