Genealogies of Knowledge Research Network (GoK)

The Sustainability & Health Corpus is developed by SHE in collaboration with The Genealogies of Knowledge Research Network, which builds on the research legacy of the four-year long, AHRC-funded project Genealogies of Knowledge: The Evolution and Contestation of Concepts across Time and Space. The project, which began in April 2016 at the University of Manchester (UK), has so far constructed five large and diverse corpora with which to explore the role that translation and other sites of mediation have played in the evolution and contestation of key cultural, political, and scientific concepts over the centuries and across languages.

Connecting scholars based across the humanities, the Network aims to promote greater interdisciplinary collaboration of mutual benefit to fields as diverse as translation studies, medical humanities, classics, cultural studies, linguistics, intellectual history, digital culture and computer science.
