2 - 4 weeks availability
The growing field of literature and science is for the first time given a fully theorized overview. Using case studies from a three hundred year history, Sleigh focuses on literary form and argues that novels did not just reflect or inform areas of science, but were part of a broader, ongoing cultural negotiation about how to read things.
CHARLOTTE SLEIGH is Senior Lecturer in History of Science at the University of Kent, UK. Her publications include Ant and Six Legs Better: A Cultural History of Myrmecology.
