Abstract

Seit seiner Gründung vor annähernd 25 Jahren hat sich das Göttinger Umwelthistorische Kolloquium zu einer Einrichtung entwickelt, welche die vielfältigen, thematisch einschlägigen Aktivitäten des Standortes wie auch des deutschsprachigen Raumes durch Austausch von Forschungsergebnissen und Sichtweisen bündelt. Von hier haben auch einige Unternehmungen ihren Ausgang genommen, welche zum heutigen Profil der Umweltgeschichte spürbar beitrugen. Der Band vereinigt Beiträge zum Kolloquium des Sommersemesters 2011 und des Wintersemesters 2011/12.

Abstract

Umweltgeschichte hat sich zu einem bedeutenden Themenfeld historischer Forschung entwickelt. Die Betrachtung vergangener Mensch-Umwelt-Interaktionen kann zum Verständnis heutiger Wechselwirkungen beitragen und Orientierungswissen für aktuelle gesellschaftliche und politische Umwelt-Debatten bereitstellen. Die Einrichtung des DFG-Graduiertenkollegs 1024 „Interdisziplinäre Umweltgeschichte. Naturale Umwelt und gesellschaftliches Handeln in Mitteleuropa“ an der Georg-August-Universität Göttingen 2004 war ein wichtiger Schritt zur Etablierung der Umweltgeschichte in der deutschen Forschungslandschaft. Kennzeichnend für die Göttinger Forschungen war stets der interdisziplinäre Ansatz, welcher naturwissenschaftliche und kulturwissenschaftliche Forschungsmethoden und Forschungsfragen zu verbinden versucht. Nach neunjähriger Förderzeit beendete das Kolleg im Jahr 2013 seine Arbeit. Der vorliegende Band enthält Beiträge des Abschlussworkshops. Unter den Themenkomplexen „Die Umwelt erfassen“, „Die Umwelt planen“ und „Der Umwelt widerstehen“ geben die Autoren anhand ausgewählter Fallstudien Einblicke in einige der erreichten Forschungsergebnisse des Graduiertenkollegs.

Abstract

Histories of Technology, the Environment and Modern Britain brings together historians with a wide range of interests to take a uniquely wide-lens view of how technology and the environment have been intimately and irreversibly entangled in Britain over the last 300 years. It combines, for the first time, two perspectives with much to say about Britain since the industrial revolution: the history of technology and environmental history. Technologies are modified environments, just as nature is to varying extents engineered. Furthermore, technologies and our living and non-living environment are both predominant material forms of organisation – and self-organisation – that surround and make us. Both have changed over time, in intersecting ways. Technologies discussed in the collection include bulldozers, submarine cables, automobiles, flood barriers, medical devices, museum displays and biotechnologies. Environments investigated include bogs, cities, farms, places of natural beauty and pollution, land and sea. The book explores this diversity but also offers an integrated framework for understanding these intersections.

Abstract

Natural disasters are a challenge for human societies. The young German nation that reacted in the face of the 100-year Rhine flood (1882/83) can be characterized by the key elements of science, technology, economy, administration, and national consciousness. Given this framework the main actors used the disaster to expand their influence (e.g. scientific research) and to establish solidly relations. In sum, dealing with a natural disaster like the Rhine flood can only be understood in the opposing terms of risk and opportunity.

Abstract

This exciting volume presents the work and research of the Rivers of the Anthropocene Network, an international collaborative group of scientists, social scientists, humanists, artists, policymakers, and community organizers working to produce innovative transdisciplinary research on global freshwater systems. In an attempt to bridge disciplinary divides, the essays in this volume address the challenge in studying the intersection of biophysical and human sociocultural systems in the age of the Anthropocene, a new geological epoch of humans’ own making. Featuring contributions from authors in a rich diversity of disciplines—from toxicology to archaeology to philosophy— this book is an excellent resource for students and scholars studying both freshwater systems and the Anthropocene.

Abstract

"Between 1941 and 1945, some 6,500 Berlin Jews, in fear for their lives, made the choice to flee their impending deportations and live submerged in the shadows of the capital of Nazi Germany. The experience was brutally difficult, and most did not survive. Yet the experiences of 1,700 who did demonstrate a remarkable and hitherto unconsidered level of agency among the survivors. This book sheds light on the daily life of those who hid and on the city that was both the source of their persecution and the site of their survival."
