Climate and beyond : the production of knowledge about the earth as a signpost of social change : an introduction


Westermann, Andrea; Rohr, Christian (2015). Climate and beyond : the production of knowledge about the earth as a signpost of social change : an introduction. Historical Social Research - Historische Sozialforschung, 40(2):7-21.

Abstract

Environmental history and the history of the earth and environmental sciences are now converging in three fields of research: analyzing the politics of deep time, reconstructing the making of natural disaster knowledge, and exploring the national and transnational devices and strategies of earth governance established in the twentieth century. We argue that including the global physical world in our historical analysis will help us to better understand the social world – past and present.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
