Leading academics from Europe, N. America, India and South-East Asia  
are coming to explore the nature, history, meaning and opportunities  
of scientific knowledge exchange in the colonial, post-colonial and  
contemporary world!

At the conference’s conclusion, participants will workshop a plan to  
continue this exchange of ideas between Eastern and Western  
academics, with future conferences taking place in Bangalore and  

“It's certainly a very exciting event for King's and Dalhousie,” says 

Situating Science Director Dr. Gordon McOuat. “Reaching out  
internationally, the organizers hope that this meeting of cultures  
will spark a long-term regular exchange of scholarship and support  
between our diverse communities. As we hope to reveal, the building  
of knowledge communities is rarely a one-way street.”
