The Narratives in times of radical transformation Conference 2020 was held jointly by KRC on November 19 and 20, 2020.
The conference was co-hosted by Technische Universität Berlin, International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP), Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) and KRC. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was held online in a hybrid format that connected Berlin and Kyoto. In addition to the host countries of Germany and Japan, researchers from Europe, the United States and Asian countries were able to participate online. About 70 researchers visited the site on both days, and there was a lively exchange of opinions, including various international perspectives.
The main theme of the conference was “narrative.” Researchers from a wide range of fields, including clinical psychology, sociology, humanities and theory of arts, gave presentations. The significance of narrative in each process was discussed not only from an individual psychological transformation, but also from changes in the community, the environment and technology, and the present situation over the COVID-19 pandemic.
