Years ago, I studied undergrad mathematics at university. The understanding passed to us then was that the past centuries have had several phases of "programs", large-scale efforts that defined mathematical research of the time, e.g.

**18th century:**Development of analysis**19th century (first half):**Foundations of modern algebra (separation of set and structure)**19th century (second half) - ca. 1930:**Rigorous foundations of mathematics (logics and set theory), further development of analysis**ca. 1920 - ca. 1970:**Formalization of computation, metamathematics

**Is there a "big picture" effort going on in mathematics at the moment also?** Or is everything happening at the same time? I'd really like to know that, but not being in math myself, I thought I should just ask the pros directly.
