Chronos and Psyche: The History of Physiological and Psychological Time Experiments

This project in the history of experimental psychology investigates the discursive and non-discursive practices connecting psychology to technology and architecture in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The goal is to elucidate the various material cultures of psychological chronometry and its epistemological preconditions - notably concerning the relation of subjectivity and time.

The Virtual Laboratory

The Virtual Laboratory is an ambitious digitalisation project dedicated to the history of the life sciences in the nineteenth century. The objective pursued by the project is to establish a virtual research station for historically processing those forms of knowledge addressed in today's public using such terms as "bio-engineering" and "molecular biology".
