    Gender and science in the long 19th century

    The intersections of science, society and culture in Britain in the 19th and early 20th centuries, specifically with reference to understandings of gender, both femininity and masculinity, and ideas of the ‘gendered intellect’. My current research focuses on two areas: Gender and engagement with the Royal Society and other learned societies and women and science in literature. I am presently writing a book on women of late Victorian science and editing the Palgrave Handbook of Women in Science (forthcoming late 2020).
