Egle Rindzeviciute - From Systems Analysis to Policy Analysis: The Transnational Politics of Knowledge Production during the Cold War

From the introduction of her forthcoming book:

"This book is about science and power. It is a historical sociology of the forging of scientific governance across the Iron Curtain in the 1960s-1980s. The idea for this volume began when I encountered a puzzling question: how is it possible that both Soviet and US governmental elites embraced the same scientific methods of governance, gathered under the umbrella names of cybernetics, system analysis, and, later, policy sciences, and, moreover, closely cooperated in development of these methods during the Cold War?"

Föreläsare: Dr. Egle Rindzeviciute is a Lecturer in Sociology at Kingston University London. In 2009-2011 she was a Browaldh postdoc at GRI and in 2012-2015 she was a researcher at Sciences Po in Paris. Her research interests include the sociology of knowledge production with a focus on political uses of scientific expertise, while she has also a long standing interest in cultural policy. Her new book 'The Power of Systems: How Policy Sciences Opened Up the Cold War World' will be published by Cornell University Press in December 2016.
