AbstractThe colloquium of the ZGW focuses on present developments, debates and perspectives in the field of history of knowledge.
ObjectiveThe colloquium deals with the general problems, questions and methods of the interdisciplinary research field "The history of knowledge". Knowledge has become one of the existential conditions of modern societies and it increasingly determines their dynamics. Therefore, it is getting more and more relevant to develop a differentiated analysis of the epistemic, social and cultural constraints of the production, circulation and the decay of knowledge. In addition, the colloquium asks after the cultural and ethical resonances of knowledge not only within science but also in relation to art, literature, technology, everyday life, and so on.
Prerequisites / NoticeKurzfristige Veranstaltungshinweise und Programmänderungen werden über den ZGW Newsletter kommuniziert, daher bitte auf Link eintragen!

Kreditpunkte können durch regelmässige Teilnahme und die Abfassung eines Essays (o.ä.m., Umfang: 5-7 Seiten) über das Thema eines der Vorträge erworben werden. Zusätzlich zu den Kolloquiumsterminen muss an einem weiteren Termin (nach Absprache anfangs Semester) ein vertiefendes Begleitseminar besucht werden (Dozent: Kijan Espahangizi).
