Regionalizing Science : Placing Knowledges in Victorian England, Hardback Book

Regionalizing Science : Placing Knowledges in Victorian England Hardback

Part of the Science & Culture in the Nineteenth Century series

Hardback

Description

Victorian England, as is well known, produced an enormous amount of scientific endeavour, but what has previously been overlooked is the important role of geography on these developments.

Naylor seeks to rectify this imbalance by presenting a historical geography of regional science.

Taking an in-depth look at the county of Cornwall, questions on how science affected provincial Victorian society, how it changed people's relationship with the landscape and how it shaped society are applied to the Cornish case study, allowing a depth and texture of analysis denied to more general scientific overviews of the period.

Winner of the Marc-Auguste Pictet Prize, 2010
