Document Summary

Liquid lives & a short history of identity: zygmunt bauman: january 19. Born in poland into a jewish family in 1925. Nazis invaded in 1939; family moved to soviet union, participating in communist party. Has written on themes as varied as the holocaust, love, work, the digital age, the role of the state, global capitalism, family relations. Concerned that individuals were still able to piece together an identity. A historical period ; from 1970s until today: break with industrialization service & technology, rapid transformation in communication and visual media changes our experiences of time and space. Disruptive/ fragmentary experience that is different from the experience of modern times (described by our classics). Based on idea that there is no single truth. I think we"ve been through a period where too many people have thought that if they have a problem, it"s the government"s job to cope with it. And you know, there is no such thing as society.
