Cosmopolitanism and the Local in Science and Nature

Cosmopolitanism and the Local in Science and Nature

Officially launched in late summer 2014 and generously funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Partnership Development Grant, “Cosmopolitanism and the Local in Science and Nature” is a three year project that aims to establish a research network on “Cosmopolitanism” in science. It closely examines the actual types of negotiations that go into the making of science and its culture within an increasingly globalized landscape. This Partnership is both about “cosmopolitanism and the local” and is, at the same time, cosmopolitan and local.

The project is managed by a coordinating centre at the University of King’s College in Halifax, NS and “nodes” in Canada, India and Southeast Asia.
