This 3-day workshop was unusual in that it was not intended to discuss and critique existing empirical papers. Instead, it aimed to “midwife” a series of collaborations exploring core problems in the history of modern science through the lens of China and India.  It brought together twenty innovative China and India scholars who were interested in producing new, co-written papers at the intersection of their expertise, where they could make not only empirical but methodological contributions. “Intersections” provided scholars with the rare chance to exchange ideas, share resources, and establish a structure for carrying out and coordinating their collaborations.
