04.-06.12.2019, Conference: „Alexander von Humboldt: Circulation of State Knowledge in Europe and Latin America“, Berlin

Alexander von Humboldt’s journey through the American societies is often understood as the starting point of a new era in the transatlantic knowledge economies. Against this unidimensional perspective, this conference will embed the figure of von Humboldt within long-term developments that shaped institutions and scientific exchange between Europe and Latin America since the 18th century.
