MSCL Colloquium - The Anthropocene: a Challenge for Sciences, Humanities and the Public

We would like to invite you to the MSCL March colloquium with Dr. Fabienne Will and her talk about "The Anthropocene: a Challenge for Sciences, Humanities and the Public" on March 28th at 13:00.

28.03.2023 um 13:00 Uhr

Dr. Fabienne Will studied history, German philology, and Italian philology at LMU. She holds a Ph.D. in History of Science from LMU and was part of the Doctoral Program of Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society. Since last year, she has been a Science Communication Coordinator at the intersection between the MSCL and the Deutsches Museum. Until 2022 she was Scholar in Residence at the Research Institute for History of Science and
Technology at the Deutsches Museum, working on the Anthropocene and the history of environmental perception. Between 2017 and 2020, she was a research associate there. During this time, she was part of the DFG research group “Practicing Evidence – Evidencing Practice.”

In this colloquium, Dr. Will will focus on the Anthropocene as a provocation to and, simultaneously, a chance for inter- and transdisciplinary cooperation. The presentation will show that with the Anthropocene debate boundaries between nature and culture, subject and object, or environment and society get blurred, as do long-established disciplinary cultures of knowledge production.

This is an online event carried out in English. However, questions in German are also welcomed. We look forward to your participation in our lively after-talk discussion! Please register in advance:
