The BMBF-funded project "Lost objects, regained nature – Towards the collection of the Anthropocene", initiates a collection of the Anthropocene as a joint project with the Natural History Museum in Paris. The project aims at rethinking the social and cultural dimensions of natural history collections. In dialogue with society, new, hybrid forms of knowledge about nature and our interaction with it will be explored and created. The development of a collection of the Anthropocene will start very practically: with a Citizen Science approach, the partners will develop a Franco-German digital collection on generational environmental amnesia. Cultural testimonies and documents will be collected, allowing a reconstruction of the often forgotten stories of European biodiversity and its cultural significance. At the same time, an interdisciplinary scientific debate on the opportunities, limits and methods of a collection of the Anthropocene will be initiated, originating particularly in the type of objects as both cultural and natural testimonies.
In support of equal rights applications from qualified women are particularly welcome. Handicapped individuals will be given preference in cases of identical qualifications.
