This chapter explores the ways in which settler universities reconfigured their relationship with ‘universal’ learning and international scholarship in the 1880s. It shows that by instituting new book buying and library practices, and by establishing travelling scholarship schemes and leave of absence programmes, settler universities deterritorialised some of the structures that regulated knowledge in the colonies, opening the way for scholars in Britain and the settler empire to make and maintain new sorts of relationships with each other.
