In the past few decades, scholarship on the globalization of science has grown dramatically and pushed our field into closer conversation with other disciplines such as anthropology, geography, area studies, and indigenous studies. This “global” turn has de-centered histories of science focused on Europe and North America and opened up exciting new horizons for research. Our workshop takes inspiration from these new approaches and will address a topic that has as yet received little attention: how to integrate global perspectives into our graduate and undergraduate teaching.
The workshop aims to bring together historians of science with different regional specialties (including South and East Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and sub-Saharan Africa) to tackle the challenges, complexities, and opportunities that collaborative pedagogy entails.
The workshop is seeking the participation of graduate students whose research and teaching center on the history of science, technology, and medicine beyond North America and Europe. To join as a participant, please complete the application form by August 31, 2019.
