    The Making of Useful Knowledge

    Organizers Berlin Center for the History of Knowledge
    Address Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Boltzmannstraße 22, 14195 Berlin
    Notes The workshop will examine case studies of the establishment and transfer of useful knowledge – be it theoretical, practical, codified, tacit and so on – across time and space, from the early modern period to the twentieth century. We are going to explore useful knowledge presenting examples related, for instance, to mining, agricultural science and practical mathematics. In general, we favour an integrated approach that explores fields as diverse as medicine, engineering or commerce. You are welcome to observe the workshop, but space is limited. Should you wish to attend, register with Nuria Monn.
