Culture and Science in the Nineteenth-Century Media Hardback
by Louise Henson, Geoffrey Cantor, Gowan Dawson, Richard Noakes, Sally Shuttlworth, Jonahtan R. Topham
Part of the The Nineteenth Century Series series
Written by literary scholars, historians of science, and cultural historians, the twenty-two original essays in this collection explore the intriguing and multifaceted interrelationships between science and culture through the periodical press in nineteenth-century Britain.
Ranging across the spectrum of periodical titles, the six sections comprise: 'Women, Children, and Gender', 'Religious Audiences', 'Naturalizing the Supernatural', 'Contesting New Technologies', 'Professionalization and Journalism', and 'Evolution, Psychology, and Culture'.
The essays offer some of the first 'samplings and soundings' from the emergent and richly interdisciplinary field of scholarship on the relations between science and the nineteenth-century media.
