Comets and the Materiality of Knowledge in the Early Modern Era: Talk at Staatsbibliothek Berlin (April 27, 2017)

On April 27, the Berlin State Library and the research group “Arbeitskreis Materialität der Literatur” are hosting a lecture by Doris Gruber on “Kometen zwischen Wunderzeichen, Astrologie und Physik: Zur Materialität von Wissenswandel in der Frühen Neuzeit”. The talk addresses the multiple ways in which the scientific study of comets created unique communication networks and influenced the use of various printed media.

The event begins at 6:15 pm at Konferenzraum 4, Haus Unter den Linden (Dorotheenstr. 27). Please see the official announcement for more information.

We’d also like to remind you of the ongoing lecture series “The Materiality of Text” at Staatsbibliothek Berlin.
