LEMCO : ein Koloss der Fleischindustrie in Fray Bentos, Uruguay

Lucía Lewowicz
LEMCO stand zu seiner Zeit für vielseitige Innovationen nicht nur auf dem technologischen Gebiet der Fleischverarbeitung, sondern auch in unternehmerischer und organisatorischer Hinsicht. Der völlig neue Ansatz des vorliegenden Beitrags geht auf bisher noch unbekannte und sehr aufschlussreiche Aspekte über die Art und Weise ein, wie das Projekt damals auf den Weg gebracht wurde.

Science in the Archives: Pasts, Presents, Futures

Archives bring to mind rooms filled with old papers and dusty artifacts. But for scientists, the detritus of the past can be a treasure trove of material vital to present and future research: fossils collected by geologists; data banks assembled by geneticists; weather diaries trawled by climate scientists; libraries visited by historians.

Working Group Books

Working Group Books are an MPIWG specialty: volumes written by two or more authors which are the result of intensive collaboration, involving multiple working sessions in which drafts of the individual chapters are presented, discussed, and revised. Many MPIWG research projects publish their principal results in this form, in addition to books and articles by individual participating scholars. These Working Group Books are especially well suited to opening up new fields of research and to covering topics from a comparative perspective, both challenges that invite collective rather than individual scholarship.
