Abstract

Abundant, salutary, problematic – energy makes history. As a symbol, resource and consumer good, it shapes technologies, politics, societies and cultural world views. Focussing on a range of energy types, from electricity and oil to bioenergy, this volume analyzes the social, cultural and political concepts and discourses of energy and their implementation and materialization within technical systems, applications, media representations and consumer practice. By examining and connecting production, mediation and consumption aspects from an international and interdisciplinary perspective, the book offers an innovative view on how energy is imagined, discussed, staged and used.

Abstract

Evidenz ist in der Wissensgesellschaft zu einer zentralen Ressource geworden. Gleichzeitig sind Aushandlungen um die Gültigkeit von Wissen ein im Laufe des 20. Jahrhunderts politisch brisanter werdendes Phänomen, das multiple Bereiche der Wissenschaft, der Technik, der Politik, der Medizin und der Gesellschaft prägt. Nicht erst die Diagnose eines „postfaktischen Zeitalters“ zeigt: Wissen wird in modernen Gesellschaften nicht per se akzeptiert, sondern Wissensakteure und -akteurinnen müssen überzeugen, um ihren Befunden Evidenz zu verleihen. Doch welche Praktiken wenden sie dazu an, wie wird die Gültigkeit von Wissen in verschiedenen Öffentlichkeiten ausgehandelt? Der Sammelband untersucht diese hier als Evidenzpraktiken verstandenen Dynamiken in interdisziplinärer Perspektive. Die Autoren und Autorinnen widmen sich dazu Beispielen aus der Medizin-, Kommunikations-, Wirtschafts-, Wissenschafts-, Technik- und Umweltweltforschung und sie verbinden dabei die Analyse der jüngsten Geschichte mit aktuellen Phänomenen. Mit Beiträgen von Helena Bilandzic, Tommaso Bruni, Sarah Ehlers, Stefan Esselborn, Sascha Dickel, Kay Felder, Mariacarla Gadebusch Bondio, Christine Haßauer, Susanne Kinnebrock, Magdalena Klingler, Emilia Lehmann, Sabine Maasen, Ruth Müller, Jutta Roosen, Helmuth Trischler, Andreas Wenninger, Fabienne Will, Karin ZachmannEvidence has become a key resource within our knowledge society. At the same time, during the course of the 20th century, negotiations on the validity of knowledge became a political and controversial phenomenon which has since shaped the multiple fields of science, technology, politics, medicine and society. As the diagnosis of a ‘post-factual age’ makes clear: knowledge will not be accepted in modern society per se; instead knowledge operators have to satisfy demands to give validity to their findings. But which practices should they apply for this purpose? How is the validity of knowledge negotiated in different public spheres? Using an interdisciplinary perspective, this anthology examines the dynamics of evidence practices. The authors cover examples from research in the fields of medicine, communication, the economy, science, technology and environmental studies. At the same time, they connect analysis from recent history with current phenomena.
