HALIFAX – Circulating Knowledge, East and West is a unique conference focused on the circulation of scientific knowledge in South Asia and beyond throughout history. The conference hopes to establish lasting global relations to support a network of social and humanist studies of science.
“Halifax has had growing interest in Eastern and international knowledge exchanges,” says Emily Tector of Situating Science at King’s College, “and this conference offers a great opportunity to widen this field.”
There will be a diversity of lectures, discussions and workshops at King’s College, taking place from July 21st to 23rd. CKDU caught up with Gordon McOuat, King’s professor and organizer of the conference, to ask what he’s looking forward to at the upcoming event.

This interview was produced by the CKDU News Collective for Operation Wake Up on CKDU 88.1fm, and aired on Wednesday, July 21 between 8am and 9am.
