The Central Europe of around 1900 saw the emergence of significant elements of modern physics, the environmental sciences and psychology. This seminar investigates the particular political, cultural and social geographies of this region and how these geographies have shaped and may still influence the trajectories of these scientific disciplines. What are the connections between Einstein’s physics, late 19th-century understandings of madness and rationality, and the cultural politics of the German and Habsburg Empires?

Speakers: Holly Case (Brown University), Michael Gordin (Princeton University), Richard Staley (University of Cambridge)

Chair: Dániel Margócsy
