WORKSHOP – IDEOLOGY AND SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION

»Ideology« has multiple meanings, ranging from blatant lies and stubborn one-sidedness to systematic distortions in communication and social forms of necessarily false consciousness. The latter are of particular interest in the context of theories of social transformation. According to these theories, ideologies interact closely with social practices. Social transformation would thus involve changes in ideologies that sustain the status quo. The workshop will discuss current approaches to ideology and their implications for theories of social transformation.
