Historical Social Research

Pascal Schillings & Alexander van Wickeren (Eds.): Spaces – Objects – Knowledge: An Integrative Perspective on Recent Turns in Historical Research[Abstract]

How could we create more complex images of historical processes of knowledge production? The answer that the contributions to this HSR Focus offer to this question is: By combining concepts that have until now frequently been applied separately. Integrating approaches suggested by the material as well as the spatial turn, the articles in this HSR Focus discuss three exemplary constellations in which new knowledge is generated: Objects producing spaces, objects circulating through different spaces, and musealized objects.
