Women and the Writing of Science – Spring 2010

Our seminar course considers the role of women in early modern and Enlightenment science from two perspectives: first, women as the often eroticized objects of scientific inquiry and second, women as scientists or natural philosophers whose work was frequently derided or obscured behind the names of fathers or brothers.  We are reading primary texts in the anatomical, astronomical, mathematical, and physical sciences, along with contemporary theory on gender, science, and the cultures of pre-1800 Europe.

This page is the public face of this course and will serve as the digital gallery for our final research projects. More coming soon!
