Jewish Mathematicians in German-Speaking Academic Culture
Transcending Tradition presents the life and work of Jewish mathematicians in Germany. Spanning a period of 150 years, it documents their emergence from segregation into the academic limelight, recalls their emigration, flight, or death after 1933, and illuminates their lasting legacies.
Produced by the History of Science Working Group at Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, the exhibition highlights the key role of Jewish mathematicians in German-speaking academic culture before 1933—in teaching and academic research, professional organizations, and throughout mathematical culture.
September 19th to 21st 2012:

Berlin Conference on Intellectual and Institutional Innovation in Science
Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities
We cordially invite you to "Berlin Conference on Intellectual and Institutional Innovation in Science". The conference seeks to improve our understanding of science as an institution in advanced political economies and in global culture. While commentators agree that the governance of research has undergone substantial change, many fundamental questions implied in this transformation await systematic treatment. This conference addresses some of these questions with regard to intellectual and institutional innovation in science. First, the conference explores the capability of research organizations and research systems to produce original and transformative intellectual contributions, such as new theories, methods, instrumentation or empirical discoveries. We invite papers that discuss factors and mechanisms at the level of research organizations and the wider institutional environment that enable scientists and research groups to accomplish ground-breaking results. The second theme addresses the capability of research organizations and research systems to take up new intellectual developments and to institutionalize new fields of research.
The Berlin Conference features internationally leading scholars from fields like history of science, sociology of science, research policy, and economicshtt/ of science. Speakers include David Baneke (Leiden), Eva Barlösius (Hannover), Silke Beck (Leipzig), Mats Benner (Lund), Ronald Doel (Florida State), Lars Engvall (Uppsala), James Evans (Chicago), Irwin Feller (AAAS), Jochen Gläser (Berlin), Edward Hackett (Arizona State), Olof Hallonsten (Gothenburg), Grit Laudel (Twente), Roger Launius (NASA), Jacques Mairesse (Paris), James Mody (Rice), Frank van der Most (Amsterdam), Dietrich Nelle (Keynote, Geman Ministry of Research and Education), Julien Pénin (Strasbourg), Thomas Pfister (Zeppelin), Marc Rothenburg (NSF), Roger Stuewer (Minneapolis) and Richard Whitley (Manchester).
