About this book

In April 2000, literary and cultural historians journeyed from Britain, Ireland, Wales, North American, and Austria to Leeds, England, to attend the conference Science in the Nineteenth-Century Periodical, where they explored how ideas about science reached the literate public - as opposed to the educated elite - through general circulation magazines. The 22 papers that proceeded into print look at women, children, and gender; religious audiences; naturalizing the supernatural; contesting new technologies; professionalization and journalism; and evolution, psychology, and culture.
