How knowledge circulates

by Gisèle Sapiro
  • Key point 1
    The circulation of knowledge can be studied from four main perspectives: systems of ideas; institutions and organisations; key authors; and material channels of circulation.
  • Key point 2
    Publishing social science and humanities books within trade publishing brings knowledge produced in academia to a wider audience.
  • Key point 3
    The patterns in the translation of scholarly books highlight uneven power relations between languages and intellectual traditions, and the role of cultural intermediaries.
