episode guide

2021-22 | Vocabulary of Conviviality | 6 Episodes

The podcast series Vocabulary of Conviviality develops a new shared epistemological foundation to achieve convivial practises of living together. How can we learn to live together? What kinds of vocabularies create potentials for conviviality? We are looking for words, tools, modes, strategies, knowledge and organisational mechanisms that help lived communities create a sense of belonging and connect people from different communities.
