A Year of History of Knowledge Events at the GHI

Little more than a year has passed since Simone Lässig added the history of knowledge as a research focus at the GHI. In this short time, the institute has hosted or been otherwise involved in a number of events related to this field. We have gathered them in one list as a kind of year-end stocktaking.Wissen auf der Flucht: Deutsche Akademikerinnen und Akademiker im Ausland, 1933-45, conference at the American Academy in Berlin, December 17, 2015.

Looking at the breadth of institutions and scholars involved in these events, it seems clear that the integrative potential of the history of knowledge that Simone Lässig finds so attractive is already becoming manifest.
