Knowledge Ecologies North America: from Metaphor to Method

The interdisciplinary symposium took place on May 2-3, 2013, at Universitätsclub Bonn.

“Knowledge Ecologies North America: Changing Patterns in a Global Dynamics” is a Bonn-basedresearch project in which scholars from the Universities of Bonn, Cologne, and Mannheim cooperate with colleagues in the United States, Canada, Asia, and other parts of Europe. Our enterprise aims at providing a forum and institutional space for interdisciplinary research and debates on issues of knowledge, its production and flow as well as on processes by which knowledges get translated, adopted, and adapted. One of the central questions we raise is how to transform ecology from the key concept and metaphor that it has become for a multitude of disciplines into a methodological framework for research on the patterns of knowledge production in a global dynamics. The symposium was dedicated to debating this particular question.
