Holger Strassheim, Professor of Political Sociology at the University of Bielefeld and leader of the research project ‘Nexus: interfaces between climate, energy, mobility and consumer policy’ at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center, is visiting the Science Studies Colloquium Series. His work explores the constellations of political and epistemic authority in world society, the role of expertise in public policy, the ways economic discourses shape social regulation and the governance networks in and between policy areas. Together with colleagues he has established the ‘WZB Mercator Forum’, a series of transdisciplinary workshops bringing together people from science, policy and society.

The seminar is open for everyone!
