Book Launch and Panel Discussion: 'Remaking Berlin'

Join author Prof. Dr. Timothy Moss on October 1st from 3 - 4:30 pm for a virtual book launch and panel discussion to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the creation of Greater Berlin.

On October 1st, 1920, the various districts of Berlin joined together to form the current city of Berlin. Overnight the city’s population doubled and Berlin became the third biggest city in the world.

To celebrate the anniversary of this historic day, THESys member Prof. Dr Timothy Moss is releasing his book ‘Remaking Berlin: A History of the City through Infrastructure, 1920–2020’ which focuses on the past hundred years of Berlin and examines the city’s turbulent history through the lens of its often invisible water and energy infrastructures.

On Thursday October 1st 2020, Timothy Moss has invited three expert panelists to take part in an online discussion to introduce his book and delve into many exciting topics. The panelists will include Prof. Christoph Bernhardt, head of the Department for Historical Research / Scientific Collections for the History of Building and Planning in the GDR and deputy director at the Leibniz Institute for Research on Society and Space; Prof. Dorothee Brantz, Director of the Center for Metropolitan Studies at the Institute for Artistic Science and Historical Urbanism at the Technical University Berlin and Prof. Heike Weber, Chair of History of Technology at the Institute for Philosophy and the History of Literature, Science and Technology at the Technical University Berlin. It will be moderated by IRI THESys director Prof. Jörg Niewöhner.
