Über diese Reihe
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.
Sessions are meant to be open-ended discussions. Therefore the virtual meeting space on Zoom will be open and available for half an hour beyond the given time to allow room for ongoing conversations to end according to their individual pace. Each participant is invited to bring their own expertise and suggestions for further readings. As a discussion starter the conveners will offer a set of questions framing the issue at stake and a brief text presenting recent developments in the literature. All additional readings are to be considered absolutely voluntary and the choice of which questions to actually discuss will fall collectively on all participants.
