Global Matters: Intersections between Histories of Science, Technology, and Environment
Organized in cooperation with the research project “A Global History of Technology (GLOBAL-HoT)” at TU Darmstadt, this seminar's aim is to seed a discussion bringing together diverse points of view about the ways in which global histories of science, technology, and environments can be produced.
We are happy to inform you that the Global Matters: Intersections between Histories of Science, Technology, and Environment virtual seminar will reconvene, with a new format, in May and June. As was the case for its first three sessions the series is organised jointly by Department III "Artifacts, Action, Knowledge" at MPIWG and the research project “A Global History of Technology (GLOBAL-HoT)” at TU Darmstadt. In this new incarnation the series will focus on case studies adopting the concepts we discussed previously (practice, landscape, time and temporality) to explore the global dimensions of the histories of science, technology, and environments. Our idea and hope is that this approach may contribute to show more clearly how the concepts may contribute to research and further foster our communal discussion.
In each session we will briefly present two research approaches. The planned sessions will be held on May 20 and June 17, 14:00-15:00 CEST, with the following rooster:
- May 20: Jonas van der Straeten and Wilko Hardenberg
- June 17: Alejandra Osorio and Tamar Novick
Further details regarding the topics will be provided closer to the dates. As for the previous series, no prior preparation is needed to attend.
We expect the series to continue after the summer and are open for proposals for presentations.
