Science and Culture in Theory and History: Latin America, France, and the Anglophone World

University of Cambridge, UK, 2-3 July 2016

This international symposium will be the fourth and final event of the AHRC-funded Science in Text and Culture in Latin America research network. It will bring together leading figures working on the relationship between science and culture in Latin America and establish a set of critical dialogues with researchers in similar fields in French, British, and North American contexts. In keynote presentations and roundtable discussions to be held on the first day of the symposium, invited scholars working on Anglophone, Francophone, and Latin American culture will trace both convergences and divergences in theoretical and historical approaches to the study of science and culture across different regions. On the second day of the event, a series of themed workshops, with short presentations and focused discussions, will enable reflection on the direction of current research on science and culture within Latin American studies.

We are grateful to the AHRC and to the Society for Latin American Studies for their contributions towards the funding of this event.
