Transnational Intellectual Networks

The Emergence of Transnational Intellectual Networks. Forms of Academic Knowledge and the Search for Cultural identities
The project is focused on universities, academic knowledge, and transnational intellectual exchange mainly, though not exclusively, in 19th and 20th century in Europe. In particular, it examines one of the principal contradictions that have characterized higher education and research in Europe for the past two centuries: between localizing and universalizing influences, and, correspondingly, between the countervailing claims of nationality defined academic cultures on the one hand and the universalism of science on the other.
