Knowledge / Power / Political Culture - A Transatlantic Conversation
Panel Discussion at the GHI Speakers: Suzanne Marchand (Louisiana State University),Jakob Tanner (Zurich University), and moderated by Anna von der Golz (Georgetown University) Knowledge is omnipresent, yet its value is increasingly being called into question, in particular in the political sphere. Amid the flood of information disseminated by social media, amid talk of “fake news” and “alternative facts,” expertise and thus knowledge are subject to challenges from many directions. The intellectual historian Suzanne Marchand (Louisiana State University) and the political historian Jakob Tanner (Zurich University) will discuss the interdependencies between political culture, knowledge and power in history and thus join the conversation about the potential and limits of knowledge as a category of historical research.
