Future in crisis: Gesellschaftsforschung 2|2020 out now

They disrupt plans, upset routines, and thwart hopes and goals: Times of crisis make the future seem less tangible for many people. In the lead article of the new issue of Gesellschaftsforschung, Lisa Suckert, who has been a senior researcher at the MPIfG since 2016, examines the current coronavirus pandemic, the financial crisis of 2007, and the Brexit referendum in order to show how shared perceptions of the future help overcome moments of crisis. Also in this issue: Thirteen researchers and members of MPIfG service groups give their accounts of how they experienced the coronavirus crisis in spring 2020. In an opinion piece, Andrea M. Herrmann explains why the crisis has fueled the gig economy and made both the shift away from traditional employment and the permanent establishment of gig work even more likely. Gesellschaftsforschung is published twice a year in print and online. To receive a free print copy or a PDF newsletter by email, please subscribe here. Gesellschaftsforschung 2|2020 (PDF)
