Next Webinar is December 13: Hypernormalization and Addiction
Hypernormalization and Addiction
Writer and podcaster Merryana Salem recently said “It’s a surreal feeling to bear witness to the world’s horrors while remembering to buy milk on your way home.” In this webinar, we’ll dive into the topic of hypernormalization and its relationship to addiction. The term was first coined by Alexei Yurchak in his book Everything was Forever, Until it was No More: The Last Soviet Generation, and further explored in a documentary by British filmmaker Adam Curtis in 2016. The term emerged as a way to describe Soviet society during a time when it was collapsing. While everyone knew the system was not working, society clipped along as if everything was just fine. We’ll discuss how the idea applies today, and how addiction becomes an adaptive way of addressing the world’s horrors when solutions seem out of reach.
Join us: Wednesday, Dec. 13 @ 4:00 – 5:00 pm MST
