“Connecting worlds: Production and Circulation of Knowledge in the First Global Age” is an opportunity for specialists in diverse fields of research such as History of Science, Colonial Studies and Global History to have a crossover debate of innovative ideas. The meeting will focus on an idea that is progressively expanding parameters of research, according to which modern science and the modern world are understood as global while also being the result of intricate local processes. The exchanges, impositions and negotiation processes underlying the shared production and circulation of knowledge at a global level will be the subject of this conference. We intend to question a Eurocentric perspective on the processes of scientific knowledge building which still dominates both Colonial History and the History of Sciences.
