He has two published books: Crafting the Quantum: Arnold Sommerfeld and the Practice of Theory, 1890-1926 and Difference and Disease: Medicine, Race, and the Eighteenth-Century British Empire. He is the editor of a special issue of Postcolonial Studies (2009), on “Science, Colonialism, Postcoloniality;” of a FOCUS section of Isis (2014) on “Re-Locating Race;” and—with Erika Milam—of a forthcoming issue (2021) of BJHS Themes on the Descent of Darwin.

This lecture will count as 1 hour of DEI credit for employees.
