Greg Dember is an author who has been writing and presenting on metamodernism since 2013. But wait — wasn’t metamodernism invented by a guy named “Hanzi Freinacht” in 2017? In this presentation Greg will introduce and elaborate on a broader understanding of metamodernism, commonly used in the academic humanities and in arts journalism, that differs from the Integral-adjacent “metamodern” project you may have heard of or be more familiar with. The original metamodernism is not about developmental stages and multi-perspectivalism; rather it is an aesthetic sensibility that has been broadly found throughout culture, in film, music, television, literary fiction and more since the turn of the millennium. The lecture will involve both theory and concrete examples, and there will be an opportunity to discuss how understanding this metamodernism may shed light on Integral Theory and vice versa.

This is a free session open to all!


An independent researcher, Greg Dember writes on metamodernism in film, television, music, and in meta-theoretical terms. In 2013, with Linda Ceriello, Ph.D., he cofounded the website whatismetamodern.com, a catalog of metamodern artifacts across many areas of culture. In addition to his popular writing on metamodernism, Greg has offered his work in various academic publications and conferences sponsotred by the AHRC Metamodernism Research Network, and the Popular Culture Association. He has been interviewed for numerous podcasts on the topic of metamodernism. Greg is at work on a book introducing metamodernism to the popular audience. He received his B.A. in psychology from Yale University in 1987, where he also studied literature. He resides in Seattle, USA, where he has been involved in the music scene for many years.
