This interdisciplinary book offers new insights into the history of science in nineteenth-century Ireland. The volume expands the existing literature in this area by moving its focus beyond the intellectual elite and relating Irish scientific activities to the historical study of Irish literature and culture, as well as the context of Victorian science more generally. By examining scientific innovations, institutions and individuals from new angles, this volume suggests new directions for the historiography of science in Ireland.
