Product Overview

"Relocating Modern Science" challenges the belief that modern science was created uniquely in the West and that it was subsequently diffused elsewhere. Through a detailed analysis of key moments of knowledge construction in botany, cartography, terrestrial surveying, linguistics, scientific education, and colonial administration, it demonstrates the crucial roles of intercultural encounter and circulation for their emergence.
It engages with questions central to imperial, colonial, and South Asian history and presents a heuristic model for other world regions, periods, and fields of knowledge, as also for transnational and global studies.
