Centre for Global Knowledge Studies (gloknos)



The Centre for Global Knowledge Studies was founded in September 2017 and will be officially launched at CRASSH, University of Cambridge, in autumn 2018. Look out for a forthcoming calendar of international events and activities.

gloknos is concerned with the past and contemporary global production, diffusion, exchange, and use of human knowledges across their different cultural configurations and ideational-material manifestations. It aims to foster advanced cross-disciplinary research and pedagogical training in Global Epistemics, as well as cross-sectorial exchanges and initiatives, through a global network of academic and non-academic collaborations and activities, an institutional and virtual infrastructure, and a publishing outlet dedicated to the free diffusion of its research outputs.

gloknos is initially funded for 5 years by the European Research Council through a Consolidator Grant awarded to Dr. Inanna Hamati-Ataya for her project ARTEFACT (2017-2022).

ARTEFACT is funded by the European Research Council under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (ERC grant agreement no. 724451)
