Yesterday we kicked off the Summer school in the history of knowledge at the Lund Centre for the History of Knowledge. Although the corona virus has hindered a few of the participants, we have gathered 14 PhD Students and early career researchers from Sweden, Norway and Denmark. During the four days of the Summer school we will discuss the societal significance of knowledge throughout history; how, where and why knowledge has been produced and circulated. A special focus of the course is on the research field of the history of knowledge as such – its formation, central concepts and research orientations. A keynote lecture will be delivered by Professor Ellen Krefting of the University of Oslo.
