Periodicals, Popular Science, and the Construction of Scientific Communities in Early Nineteenth-Century Britain
 
From the moment that Britain’s first commercial scientific periodicals began to be produced in the 1790s, the question of how to achieve a sustainable readership was a central concern.  Such issues overlapped critically with questions about the politics of knowledge.  Who in an industrializing society should have access to, or be able to contribute to the development of the sciences?  This paper explores how the emerging notion of the “popular” was deployed in the first fifty years of British science periodicals, both to generate a market and to develop and maintain communities of scientific practice, showing that publishers, editors, and readers offered a range of perspectives on how periodicals might be used to manage the involvement of diverse participants in the sciences.

Periodicals, Scientific Popularization, and Domaining Effects in Anglophone Nuclear Physics, 1900-1945

The early decades of research in radioactivity and nuclear physics were rich in metaphors and analogies that circulated widely across several cultural and knowledge domains, often through numerous genres of periodicals. Using the concept of domaining from anthropologist Marilyn Strathern and literature and science scholar Susan Merrill Squier, this talk will explore the alchemical tropes in the early chemistry and physics of radioactivity and the militaristic tropes often employed in discussions of particle accelerators and other attempts to break up atomic nuclei (on both sides of the Atlantic) as examples of the generative circulation of scientific concepts through periodical genres and other publications.  The paper will also suggest possible uses for topic modelling and other forms of quantitative analysis of scientific journals and popularizing periodicals.
