Fifth ReTheory Session

Location: Seminarraum 2, Haus der Archäologien, am Bergbaumuseum 31, 44791 Bochum
On December 14, 2022, we invite all interested persons to the next ReTheory meeting from 16:00 to 18:00 in Seminar Room 2 at the Haus der Archäologien in Bochum.
The fifth session will be about the age of anthropogenic transformation of the earth, which has been much discussed recently: the Anthropocene. As readings, we will discuss a recently published introductory text from the history of science and a contribution by the Indian historian Dipesh Chakrabarty.
The two readings are as follows:
Chakrabarty, Dipesh. 2021. Introduction. Intimations of the Planetary. In Dipesh Chakrabarty: The Climate of History in a Planetary Age, pp. 1–20. Chicago: The University of Chicago Press.
Verburgt, Lukas M. und Elske de Waal. 2022. Introduction. Rethinking History of Science in the Anthropocene. ISIS. A Journal of the History of Science Society 113(2): 366–376. DOI: 10.1086/719629.
If you do not have access to the readings, please let us know by email, and we will provide you with a download link. We will also arrange a hybrid setup if you want to join virtually.
Until then, good reading!
Andreas Angourakis and Johannes Jungfleisch
