Grant Awarded for Follow-up Collaborative Workshop

Dr. Gordon McOuat, Director of the Situating Science Strategic Knowledge Cluster of Canadian scholars in humanist and social studies of science based at the University of King’s College (UKC), has been awarded a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Aid to Research Workshops and Conferences grant to support a workshop in Manipal, India.

Co-organized by Dr. Sundar Sarukkai, professor at the Manipal Centre for Philosophy and Humanities in Manipal, India, “Sciences and Narratives of Nature: East and West” will mark the second stage in a multi-stage collaborative initiative between Canadian, Indian and Southeast Asian scholars in the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS). Following the successes of the “Circulating Knowledge: East and West” workshop held at the UKC in July, 2010, the workshop will take a comparative approach to examine the rise of sciences and concepts of nature in the “East” and the “West”.

Dates for the event are currently set for December, 12, 13 and 14th, 2011. Details, as they arise, will be posted on
