"The Sciences and Empires mail list is an 'unmoderated' list operated by the Sciences et Empires Groupe, a Commission of the International Congress of the History of Science. The group itself was founded in conjunction with an international meeting held at UNESCO in Paris in April, 1990. The theme of that meeting was 'Sciences and Empires: European Expansion and Scientific Development of Asia, Africa, America and Oceania.' "
