People, things, ideas and languages have crossed borders since the earliest of times. Such passages have entailed epistemic shifts and encounters, transactions and transformations. A Crossroads of Knowledge initiative, this public event brings together scholars, artists and activists to think about migration and what it does with, and to, knowledge. In tune with the Crossroads project, we begin in the early modern world, but move freely across periods to dwell on the urgent experience of migrancy in our own times. We aim to acknowledge the many meanings of ‘migration’ and ‘knowledge’, to probe the history of their interrelation, and to use our imaginative engagement with crossings of knowledge in its many forms.

The five-year ERC -funded project, Crossroads of Knowledge in Early Modern England: the Place of Literature, is based jointly in the Faculty of English and CRASSH , at the University of Cambridge.
