Bacteriological Knowledge Transfer to and within Poland
How to Make Microbes Travel. Bacteriological Knowledge Transfer to and within Poland, 1885-1939
The PhD-project analyzes media and techniques of knowledge transfer in medical bacteriology. It explores how texts and pictures as well as the circulation of people, objects and animals were employed in order to mobilize the newly developed field of bacteriology from its original laboratories in Berlin and Paris to different geographical and social spaces. The project contributes to describing knowledge transfer as a complex and dynamic process. Therefore, it puts particular emphasis on modes of mutable mobilizations of laboratory networks. It also looks at strategies to merge germ theory and practices with the specificities of the local and social contexts it is transferred to.
By focusing on knowledge transfer to and within the Polish lands and later the 2nd Polish Republic the project sheds light on the mostly unexplored history of medicine in Central-Eastern Europe. It can show that Polish doctors and scientists played a vital role in the production and stabilization of bacteriological knowledge in Europe around 1900. Therefore, it also contributes to decentering Western European historiography on medicine and science, aiming at a more pluralistic account of knowledge production in the modern age.
