This seminar explores connections between the history of science and European colonial expansion during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. How did European colonial expansion aid the development of scientific knowledge and vice versa? What roles did colonial places and peoples play in the development of European science? We examine the history of natural history, medicine, and geography and the evolution of such concepts as nature, race, and climate. We also gain practice in conceptualizing, researching, writing, and revising a substantial research essay based on primary historical sources. Previously offered as HIST110E PO.
