Fabian Kraemer joins the Vossius Center in 2018-2019 as Associate Fellow.
Fabian Kraemer is assistant professor for the historian of science at Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich. He is interested primarily in the history of the sciences and the humanities from the Renaissance through the nineteenth century. He has two main research interests: (1) the scholarly practices of reading and writing that were shared across the early modern Republic of Letters and their relation to “scientific” observation; (2) the pre-history of the “two cultures” (C.P. Snow) of the sciences and the humanities/literature. During the tenure of his stay at the Vossius Center and NIAS, he will be conducting research on how the sciences and the humanities grew apart at institutions of higher learning in the U.S. and Germany in particular over the course of the long nineteenth century.
