Polymodernity: new and better name

It used to be Metamodernity, but for a couple of reasons, we decided to change the name:

The prefix poly means several, whereas meta means beyond, and polymodernity is about bringing several cultural codes together, so polymodernity makes more sense than metamodern­ity.

There is also a concept named metamodernism, which is not the same as what I called metamodernity, but the two were constantly confused.

So, polymodern­ity it is!

And you can find the book and more about it here: https://www.nordicbildung.org/polymodernity/

The book Metamodernity first came out in June 2019, you can get the new version from mid-November 2023.
