Forum ‘GTW@BTU’ History of Science and Technology Research at BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg

As a forum for publishing texts from a contemporary perspective, GTW@BTU is focussing on current as well as past research topics in science and technology studies.

Various authors are encouraged to express their views not only on science and technology studies at BTU, but also in transregional contexts. Alumni and former BTU teachers, colleagues, friends and supporters of science and technology studies from other universities, associations, and business communities describe their views on these different aspects.

In order to yield constructive discussions, the blog offers a platform for different positions regarding science and technology studies at BTU. Additionally, a glimpse into our showcase gives readers the opportunity to get an idea about decades of teaching and researching—this includes work of former departments and institutions, which have been merged into today's Chair of Technoscience Studies over time.
