May 23-24, 2019, Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge, Free School Lane, Seminar Room 1

Organised by Mary Brazelton and Daniel Margocsy 

How do you get from one end of the globe to the other, and then back? If your vehicle breaks down on the way, what do you do? These questions have been of paramount importance since humans began to migrate. This two-day conference explores the emergence and co-construction of transportation technologies, travel infrastructures and the circulation of knowledge from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. The papers are pre-circulated; please email margocsy@gmail.com to register.
