Recalling Modernity

The tag of this issue of Cultural Studies Review echoes Latour’s challenge for a recall of modernity. This ‘recall’ will enquire into what has gone wrong, repair, and move on through an existing postmodernity which is nothing but ‘an interesting symptom of transition’ that can be used to ‘bring about the end of modernism more quickly’. A recall of modernity will build a thinking space, perhaps a space of some chagrin where the original European moderns can decide what matters more than life to ‘us’ (for did ‘we’ really invent modernity?) and begin a new diplomacy from that point.
