METALLA Special issue 10 published

The METALLA special issue complements the well-known journal, which allows authors and editors to publish a larger number of papers or different research topics in the form of conference proceedings, thematic issues, or monographs. The results of the conference "Resources and Transformation in Pre-modern Societies" have been published in the new METALLA Sonderheft 10.

The conference has taken place online on various dates in November, December 2020 and January 2021. The publication is part of the “Resources in Societies” project of the Leibniz PostDoc School. (ReSoc). ReSoc is a cooperation project between Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum, Ruhr-Universität Bochum and FernUniversität Hagen.

The published abstracts deal with resource-based change processes on a theoretical and empirical basis in order analyse the embeddedness of social institutions and their resource-driven behaviour. This approach aims at a multivocal perspective, in which the entanglement of humans with their materialised environment becomes apparent through various practices. This includes how social institutions emerge and change through such processes in different times and eras.

The main topics (conference Sessions) of the published abstracts dealing with:

  • Life Worlds in Resource Landscapes
  • Skill, Embodiment and the Growth of Knowledge
  • Resources and Complex Systems
