Adresse
Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Boltzmannstraße 22, 14195 Berlin, Germany

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.

The virtual seminar series Global Matters: Intersections between Histories of Science, Technology, and Environment 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.

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 September 16, October 21 and November 18, 14:00-15:00 CEST.

Further details regarding the topics will be provided closer to the dates. No prior preparation is needed to attend.
