|1 Apr 2004 - 2 Apr 2004||All day||CRASSH|
CRASSH Seminar Room, Cambridge
Workshop sponsored by CRASSH (University of Cambridge)
in association with CIRESS & The Institute of Advanced Study (University of Bologna)
Ideas migrate across both time and space. This conference aims to track how and why they do so by considering methodological issues raised by the study of the migration of ideas as well as case studies. The focus will be on people as transmitters of ideas, the objects through which ideas move, and the broadcast media that now enables ideas to become global in a matter of seconds.
The organisers hope that the conference will contribute to the precise conceptualisation of the migration of ideas, to the understanding of their modes of transmission, and to drawing out the implications of ideas moving around.
