Anticipation is increasingly at the heart of urgent contemporary debates, from climate change to economic crisis.

Anticipation 2015

As societies are less confident that tradition will provide an effective guide to the future, anticipatory practices are coming to the foreground of political, organizational and personal life. Research into anticipation, however, has not kept pace with social demand for insights into these practices, their risks and their uses. Where research does exist, it is deeply fragmented. This conference’s main aim is therefore to serve as a point of encounter and exchange among scholars form different disciplines, helping them to develop a fuller understanding of the centrality of anticipation to human behaviour.
