Neu auf YouTube | Online lecture: Per Högselius "Why historians of technology and environment can and must engage in the public debate"
This online lecture was given (April 19, 2021) at the Berlin-Brandenburg Colloquium for Environmental History. It was the kickoff event for an online lecture series entitled »Usable Pasts – Insights from Environmental History and the History of Technology for today’s challenges”«. The lecture series explores the potential – and pitfalls – of enrolling these fields of scholarship to inform, challenge, and inspire responses to today's climate and environmental crises. The overall purpose is to identify what and how historians can contribute to current debates.
The presentation by Per Högselius (Stockholm, Sweden) starts at: 00:20:56.
The online lecture series is organised by Astrid M. Kirchhof (Berlin) and Jan-Henrik Meyer (Frankfurt/Potsdam) in close collaboration with Christoph Bernhardt (Erkner), Julia Obertreis (Erlangen), Heike Weber (Berlin) and Timothy Moss (Berlin).
