The Podcast

This podcast series is an essential part of the Historians For Future platform. Our aim is to provide a historical perspective on the climate and biodiversity crisis we are facing: By talking with experts about what we can learn from environmental history, the history of science and social history, about the critical potential of historical studies for thinking about the future, and about science from a liberal arts perspective…and why this matters.

The podcast series goes

  • beyond academia
  • beyond individual research work
  • beyond the past

The podcast episodes break down current research into bite-sized insights. H4F want to offer podcasts with leading historians (we understand «historians» in the broadest sense) on our relevant topics, so you and other people (students, interested other scientists, academics, but also interested citizens) enjoy listening to it, are better informed, and feel encouraged to think about our future by reflecting the complexities of our past.
