The first workshop organized by the Board of Events will be on Epistemic Transfer in the History of the Humanities. The purpose of this workshop is to grasp the phenomenon of knowledge transfer in a systematic way, in order to answer general questions such as: Why and how do humanities disciplines borrow knowledge from one another? Under what conditions has knowledge transfer been (un)successful in the past? And what light, if at all, do historical examples shed on current forms of (inter)disciplinarity?
The event will take place digitally on 14-15 November 2023 and will be free of charge. The workshop includes both senior and younger career scholars and is open to all those interested.
