History of science and knowledge has engaged with global history since a long time as shown, among other, by the research and teaching programs of the HEC department in the last ten years. Focusing on the 16th and 17th centuries, the Iberian and Italian peninsulas and their dense relations with both East and West Indies, the discussion aims at contributing to this current debate, and addressing some of the questions related to it: the scales, spaces and places of science and knowledge making; the chronologies at stake; the sources and their asymmetrical approaches.
