"Livingstone and Withers's volume showcases the wide and fertile ground being ploughed by historical geographers, science studies scholars, and historians of science. In examining the diffuse spaces and the multiple forms of scientific knowledge, and in attending to the performative and situated character of its production and reception, "Geographies of Nineteenth-Century Science "speaks to recent work on technologies of the self, urban studies, and the history of the book.
