New Spaces of Scientific Knowledge.
[Conference] 30 June and 1 July 2011, University of Lausanne, Switzerland.
The spaces of academic, scientific, and policy knowledge production have markedly changed over the past ten years. A mutually constitutive set of new actors, institutional initiatives, scientific networks, and changing state strategies at various spatial scales have been transforming the landscape. Yet, despite a growing interest in the effects of the knowledge produced, less attention has been given to the reconfiguring subjects and sites that are shaping the evolving geography of contemporary knowledge production. The MOVE 2011 conference seeks to deepen our understanding of these changes along four themes:
2. The changing practices and influence of scientific diaspora networks
3. Scalar transformations in international and “global” health policy and the effect of these developments on public health practices
4. The sites and subjects involved in constructing migration and mobility policy expertise and knowledge
