Science and Empire: State of the art and future questions

3S member Martin Mahony will participate in a free online seminar organised by the Department of Philosophy and History of Ideas in the School of Culture and Society at Aarhus University on Thursday 10th February 2021 3-5PM (GMT+1).

The seminar, entitled ‘Science and Empire: State of the art and future questions’, marks the release of The Routledge Handbook of Science and Empire. This volume introduces readers to important new topics on the intersection of science and imperialism. Contributors to the collection cover a broad range of themes, including scientific and imperial disciplines, networks of science, scientific practices within empires, and science and decolonization. 

The purpose of the seminar is to facilitate discussion among interested peers, students, and volume contributors about the topics covered in the Handbook and new directions of research. Professor Andrew Goss (Augusta University) will introduce the volume and distinguished historian of science Professor Bernard Lightman (York University) will comment on the state of the field, whilst a number of volume contributors, including 3S member Martin Mahony, will make a series of flash presentations.
