About Topic

What are Peripheries?

People are in a constant flow between centers and peripheries, the same way as thoughts, value systems, and cultures. Reflecting on them contributes to self-understanding and self-definition of ourselves, our time, our culture. What might be the short- and long-term beneficial or harmful effects of peripheries?

In many cases, for example, normality is also marginalized. But we can also think about minorities, the differences between downtowns and the suburbs, or between cities and villages, human relations, the need for uniqueness, acceptance of gender orientation and identity, tolerance or the lack of it, and other kinds of peripheral issues.
