Science and Empire in the 19th Century


This book examines the role of science in the XIXth and early XXth centuries, in the context of British imperialism and the rise of the American empire, as a way to fulfil a quest for knowledge, a tool in the exploration of foreign lands, discourse on and representations of otherness, as well as a source of anguish and questioning. The fields of research are human and social sciences, racial theories, natural sciences, in specialised or popularised works, in travel narratives and literary texts.
