    Concepts and Significance of Noise in Acoustics: Before and After the Great War.Roland Wittje - 2016 - Perspectives on Science 24 (1):7-28.
    What is noise?Noise is a central concept of acoustics that distinguishes certain kinds of sounds from others. Beyond sound, notions of noise associated with the measurement process and information theory have moved to virtually all fields of science and engineering, and even the social sciences. Not surprisingly, we find not one but several different and even contradictory concepts of noise in science and engineering. How did this happen?Scientific concepts of noise have changed over time. But they have also varied in (...)

    The Garching Nuclear Egg: Teaching Contemporary History Beyond the Linguistic Turn.Roland Wittje - 2013 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 44 (4):683-689.
    In my paper I argue for mobilising recent material heritage at universities in teaching history of contemporary science. Getting your hands dirty in the messy worlds of the laboratory and the storage room, and getting entangled with the commemorative practices of scientists and technicians does not belong to the common experiences of students in history and philosophy of science. Despite the recent material turn in cultural studies, students’ engagement with the material world often remains a linguistic exercise, extending at most (...)
