“Science and Culture in the Nineteenth Century” Book Series

I’m on the editorial board of this series -- published by Pickering & Chatto in London and aimed at academic readers and university libraries -- that puts nineteenth-century science in a broad social and cultural context. Books in the series have dealt with the social organization of science and shared methodological assumptions underlying it, the popularization of science, the intersection of science with industry, and the relationship between science and literature. Originally focused on developments in Britain, the series has gradually expanded to cover Continental Europe and the United States, as well.

Along with the other members of the editorial board, I review all proposals submitted for the series, and advise the series editor on their suitability for the series. I also, typically, serve as the editorial board’s designated reader of the full manuscript on volumes overlapping my areas of expertise: geology, archaeology, anthropology, and local/regional scientific societies in nineteenth century Britain.
