MPIfG Annual Colloquium - Institutstag

The MPIfG Annual Colloquia are intended as a forum for discussion for social and political scientists from the MPIfG and other research institutions as well as individuals engaged in the study of politics, society and the economy. The two-day event aims to present current research taking place at the MPIfG and to provide an opportunity for informal discussion.
The colloquia are organized jointly by the MPIfG and the Society of Friends and Former Associates of the MPIfG and have been held every autumn since 2008.


12th Annual Colloquium, November 14-15, 2019

More than just technology: How digitalization is challenging the individual and capitalism

Healthcare, dating, fighting crime, new media, and the working world – there are few aspects of life today that are not affected by the digital journey. Driven by new technologies and a new spirit of capitalism, this major transformation of society is already well underway. To what extent can digitalization be seen as a social process? How are power relations between the market, the state, and the individual shifting? How are our everyday life and social ties changing? How must we use our own intelligence critically to control artificial intelligence? And is it time for a new ethics for the digital age? These are questions central to the MPIfG's 12th Annual Colloquium, which is taking place in November of this year.
