Knowledge and Network. Botany and the Transfer of Plants in 18th Century European Correspondence Networks
Interdisciplinary conference, University of Augsburg, Germany, September 9th - 11th 2004
The conference is dedicated to comparative research on European correspondence networks from the 18th century. The main target will be to investigate the making of social interrelationships and their significance for the emergence and transfer of knowledge within the scientific context. This should be exemplified for ‘Botany and the Transfer of Plants in the 18th Century’. The conference shall combine papers on single correspondences with papers on the cultural, medial and scientific framework of 18th century letter writing. The proposed papers should either introduce a correspondence network of europeanwide dimensions or deal with relevant questions of cultural, medial and scientific contexts of 18th century scientific correspondences.
Proposals: abstract of max. 1000 words, 1-page CV; Deadline: 31 May 2004.
The organisers are: Regina Dauser (Augsburg), Stefan Hächler (Berne/CH), Michael Kempe (Frankfurt/M.), Franz Mauelshagen (Zurich/CH), Martin Stuber (Berne/CH).
