Project Area A "Transformations"

Cultures of vigilance can only be explored taking their long history and broad cultural variability into account, as well as how these cultures change, are modified and shift throughout history. “Transformation” is used to describe transformation processes that cannot simply be understood as diachronic sequences; that is commonly accepted forms of society divided and organized to adhere to archetypal ideals (such as antiquity, the Middle Ages and modern times, or the development of face-to-face societies to the anonymous constellations that exist today). These transformations often take place below the framework of epochal changes and constitute the effects of cultural transfer and cross-cultural interweaving.
