Transnational Perspectives on Soviet Cutting-Edge Technology

31.01.2019 - 09:45 to 01.02.2019 - 17:00 Add to calendar

Second International Conference of the joint German-Swiss Research Group “Nuclear Technopolitics in the Soviet Union” (NucTechPol).

The second international conference organized by a bi-national research cluster of the universities of Bern, Heidelberg and Tübingen aims at a broader contextualization of Soviet nuclear history within the trans-national history of Soviet high-technology.
Many aspects of emerging technologies such as nuclear energy, spaceflight or computing were genuinely transcending the responsibility, competence and jurisdiction of nation states.
At the same time, border-crossings were clearly limited to certain actors and their professional as well as personal networks across the “blocs”.

Organised by: 
NucTechPol Team University of Bern History Department Prof. Dr. Julia Richers and M.A. Fabian Lüscher.
