„Wie wir wurden, was wir sind“—75 Jahre Max-Planck-Gesellschaft
"'How we became what we are'—75 years of the Max Planck Society"
Research Scholar Birgit Kolboske talks about gender hierarchies in the Max Planck Society, the Harnack Principle and the work on her latest book Hierarchien. Das Unbehagen der Geschlechter mit dem Harnack-Prinzip: Frauen in der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft (2022). This is part of the research program completed at the end of 2023, "History of the Max Planck Society (1948-2002)" (GMPG).
The research program was concerned with the emergence of scientific knowledge and the interaction of research practice with its institutional and social contexts. It developed new perspectives on the relationship between the history of science and contemporary history and treated the history of the Max Planck Society as an important part of the cultural, political, and economic history of the Federal Republic in the context of European and global developments.
