Om May 7, 2019, we'll have our first PASSIM seminar in Norrköping (and online). PASSIM's José Bellido and Matts Lindström from Uppsala University will each give a presentation on microfilm, followed by a discussion on this "forgotten" technology and its repercussions for the dissemination of knowledge.

More about PASSIM

In 2017, I was awarded an Advanced Investigator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) for "Patents as Scientific Information, 1895-2020," (PASSIM) a five-year project which began on October 1, 2017 and will run until September 30, 2022.

PASSIM's objective is to unpack the multifaceted relationships featured in the patent bargain, recombine them in unexpected and creative ways and develop from that conceptualization a new narrative of patents and intellectual property. Anchored in historical knowledge but designed to accommodate interdisciplinary dialogue on theory and method, PASSIM stretches across past, present, and even into future knowledge infrastructures. Tracing the longue durée of the dynamics of scientific information from the end of the nineteenth-century to the first decades of the twenty-first tells an untold story of the networks of people, artifacts and money that shaped the current knowledge infrastructure into its present form. Transgressing the traditional divide between the natural sciences and the humanities, PASSIM delivers an innovative new framework for understanding of how information is disseminated and used (or not), within contemporary knowledge infrastructures.
