Elena Aronova
Assistant Professor of History University of California, Santa Barbara

Please join us for a discussion with Professor Elena Aronova and graduate students to discuss the introduction and her essay from the recent volume of Osiris, titled “Data Histories.”

Co-edited with David Sepkoski and Christine von Oertzen, the volume brings together a variety of perspectives in history of science under an emerging new rubric, the history of data. Thinking of data historically provides us with an opportunity to consider the impact of changes in cultures of information in the sciences in the longue durée, as well as to rethink important questions that cross many of our traditional disciplinary categories.
