On 23–24 March, the Lund Centre for the History of Knowledge (LUCK) organized the digital workshop “Actors of Knowledge”. The aim is to produce a third volume in our history of knowledge series which started with Circulation of Knowledge (2018) and continued with Forms of Knowledge (2020). The new book is due to be published in the autumn of 2023.
Johan Östling, David Larsson Heidenblad and Anna Nilsson Hammar are hosting the workshop and they will also be the editors of the book. They have gathered an international group of authors from Australia, Britain, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. The authors have different fields of expertise and come from different academic backgrounds, including history, economic history, history of science, history of education and media history.
The basic idea of the book is that it should deal with different aspects of actors of knowledge in history. The chapters will contain empirical examples, but more importantly should each chapter make a contribution in one way or another to the theoretical, methodological, conceptual or historiographical development of the history of knowledge as a scholarly field.
