A SACRe meeting with Simon Schaffer
As part of the SACRe Meetings, a monthly program dedicated to the dialogue between research and creation, ENS-PSL welcomes Simon Schaffer, a Professor of the history of science at the University of Cambridge, who has been one of the promoters of the new history of science, which pays close attention to its forms of contextualization, from the social, political, and cultural points of view.
The first session of the 2022-2023 SACRe Meetings program welcomes historian Simon Schaffer. His research path leads him from instrumental studies in the 1980s to the analysis of science shows in the 1990s and to the global turn in history from the 2000s onwards, a turn that inspires him questionson the concept of universality in modern science (Aesthetics of Universal Knowledge), a theme that runs through all his work.
This meeting is organized by the SACRe laboratory of PSL in partnership with the Master's in Transnational History (History Department of ENS-PSL) and the Translitterae Graduate Program. It is moderated by Antoine de Baecque, Quentin Bourgault, Frédérique Aït-Touati, Charlotte Guichard and Stéphane Van Damme.
