If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dániel Margócsy.

How was natural knowledge made in colonial encounters across the early modern period? How did natural knowledge contribute to the construction of racial and ethnic difference? And how did the process of colonization reconfigure the concept of knowledge? This panel examines how the 21st-century world continues to be shaped by the answers that early modern peoples provided to these questions.

Speakers: Maria Portuondo (Johns Hopkins University), Simon Schaffer (University of Cambridge), Suman Seth (Cornell University)

Chair: Dániel Margócsy
