Working Futures

Launched in 2018 by the Wissenschaftskolleg and the International Research Center Work and Human Life Cycle in Global History (re:work), the transnational network Working Futures brings together sociologists, historians, philosophers, economists, law experts and anthropologists to discuss current transformations in the world of work and the epistemological challenges they raise for the historical and social sciences.



The Blankensee-Colloquia are international seminars on an inovative topic from the humanities and social sciences, organised by young scholars from the Berlin Brandenburg region. Under the key word "Cultural and social change" they foster research on processes of contemporary social and cultural change.
