ISRF Workshops

Beginning with the inaugural Annual Workshop in May 2013 event, the ISRF has run and funded a number of events with the aim to provide a platform for ISRF Fellows to report on their research projects, and also to contribute to broader conversations and discussions across the social sciences.

The 2018 ISRF Workshop pursues the line of thought emerging from last year’s ‘Today’s Futures’, that to plan intelligently for the future we need to pay attention to the past. But what happens when social scientists and historians meet and talk? Particularly, when the ISRF’s fellows meet historians of knowledge at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin.
