The Max Planck Institute for the History of Science is excited to announce its Institute's Colloquium 2021–22 program, "Trusting Science." The series seeks to explore this topic from interdisciplinary, transnational, and longue durée perspectives. Through several talks and panels traversing history, philosophy, sociology, political science, and science and technology studies, we hope to inspire new analytical insights and a basis for further discussions around trust in science.
Ultimately, "Trusting Science" seeks to facilitate broad interdisciplinary discussions around social, political, and internal trust in science, provide inspiration for further academic research, and open up discussion around the multifaceted challenges faced by historians, social scientists, scientists, and medical practitioners as they confront this issue on local and global scales.
Details and Participation
The series takes place on Zoom and is open to all—academics, students, and members of the public are all welcome to attend, listen, and participate in discussion. Information for each event, as well as how to register, can be found on our online program.
