The Max Planck Society honours every year up to 30 young scientists for outstanding scientific achievements.
Historian Sabine Donauer has been awarded the Otto Hahn Medal for her dissertation „Emotions at Work – Working on Emotions. The Production of Economic Selves in 20th-Century Germany.” Ute Frevert supervised her thesis from 2009 until the end of 2013 at the Center for the History of Emotions. In her dissertation at the FU Berlin Donauer traces how the emotions of the workforce have attracted the interest of science and industry since industrialization and how they became subjected to changing interventions. With this medal, the Max Planck Society acknowledges junior researchers’ excellent achievements.
