International Workshop: How to make the peripheral "mainstream": Recent Developments in the Historiography of Science - Paris (France), 12-14 December 2011

International Workshop "Comment placer la périphérie au centre: développements récents dans l'historiographie des sciences". Paris, 12-14 December 2011.

« Over the last few years, studies on the history of science in parts of the world that had long been regarded as having played no significant part in the historical development of science have flourished. At the same time those who have studied the history of science “elsewhere” have engaged in historiographical reflection to an increased degree. This reflection has been nourished by research pertaining specifically to the history of science, but also by critiques of eurocentrism in the social sciences and in the humanities (post-colonial studies, global history, criticism of “orientalism”...). Based on experience of organising a number of workshops on related themes, we now propose to open a discussion on the present developing state of our field. »
