New Book "Knowledge on the Move" Co-Edited by GHI Director Simone Lässig is Now Available

A new collection of essays, Wissen in Bewegung. Migration und globale Verflechtungen in der Zeitgeschichte seit 1945 [Knowledge on the Move: Migration and Global Interdependence in the History of Germany since 1945, edited by GHI Director Simone Lässig together with Lars Müller and Stephanie Zloch, was recently published by De Gruyter.

The volume focuses on how knowledge circulates beyond national boundaries and undergoes change when arriving in new contexts. Using a variety of cases studies from the fields of education, media studies, and the history of science, the book describes how knowledge is created, the forms its takes, the participants involved, and the ways this process has challenged established wisdom.
