The Vossius Center aims to investigate the position and development of knowledge-making disciplines, in past and present.
Interactions between humanities, sciences and social sciences show that the search for new knowledge is greatly facilitated by a reflection on the interdisciplinary history of our current knowledge. It is thus our conviction that with a post-disciplinary historiographical approach, we can find valuable answers for the future.
The Vossius Center explicitly aims to explore new research directions in the history of the humanities and sciences as well as in university history, through workshops, lectures, master classes and actively stimulating research funding. We also have several internal funding options.
