Technology, Temporality and the Study of Central Asia

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 continue exploring the global dimensions of the histories of science, technology, and environments through the discussion of precirculated papers. Our idea and hope is that this approach may contribute to show more clearly how the concepts discussed earlier this year (practice, landscape, time and temporality) may contribute to research and further foster our communal discussion.

The series will take place online according to this schedule:

  • Wed, 22 Sep, 14:00 – Tamar Novick (MPIWG): “Bovine Regimes: How Animals Became Technologies.”
  • Thurs. 21 Oct., 14:00 – Jonas van der Straeten (TU Darmstady): “Technology, Temporality and the Study of Central Asia.
  • Thurs. 25 Nov., 14:00 – Wilko Graf von Hardenberg (MPIWG): “The Rising Tide: An Environmental History of Science"

Further details about access and the full papers will be provided a week ahead of each meeting.

About This Series

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.
