Details

Wir laden Sie herzlich zu unserem Mittagsseminar Energiewende ein, das sich diesmal mit einem Vortrag von Timothy Moss: „Urban energy in Berlin, 1920-1990“ befassen wird . Auf diese Sitzung folgt ein Film (bis 15.00), der in kooperation mit Timothy Moss gedreht wurde.

Das Mittagsseminar findet ein Mal im Monat statt. Hierbei kommen VertreterInnen aus Wissenschaft und Zivilgesellschaft zusammen, um aktuelle Fragen aus dem Bereich Energie-Klima zu diskutieren.

Timothy Moss is a Senior Researcher at the Integrative Research Institute on Transformations of Human-Environment Systems (IRI THESys) at the Humboldt University of Berlin, where he leads the research group Urban Infrastructures and Human-Environment Relations. His research is distinctive for connecting historical studies of infrastructure with contemporary debates on sociotechnical and urban transitions. He draws on relational and sociospatial concepts from urban geography and science and technology studies to analyse past infrastructural trajectories, setting an example in theoretical grounding for historical research. Conversely, he uses this analysis of the past as a source of historical contextualisation and critical reflection for scholarship on current transitions to networked infrastructures. He is particularly interested in the processes by which energy, water and ICT infrastructures reflect and reproduce the multiple geographies, power relations and socio-materialities of a city.
