    Reading and Writing the Scientific Voyage: FitzRoy, Darwin and John Clunies Ross.Katharine Anderson - 2018 - British Journal for the History of Science 51 (3):369-394.
    An unpublished satirical work, writtenc.1848–1854, provides fresh insight into the most famous scientific voyage of the nineteenth century. John Clunies Ross, settler of Cocos-Keeling – which HMSBeaglevisited in April 1836 – felt that Robert FitzRoy and Charles Darwin had ‘depreciated’ the atoll on which he and his family had settled a decade earlier. Producing a mock ‘supplement’ to a new edition of FitzRoy'sNarrative, Ross criticized their science and their casual appropriation of local knowledge. Ross's virtually unknown work is intriguing not (...)

    Circling in on Tyndall and Turner: Bernard Lightman and Michael S. Reidy : The Age of Scientific Naturalism: Tyndall and His Contemporaries. London: Pickering & Chatto, 2014, 256pp, £60, $99 HB. [REVIEW]Katharine Anderson - 2015 - Metascience 24 (2):219-222.
    The subtitle of this work surely deserves a place on its cover. John Tyndall was a Victorian scientist remarkable for his experimental abilities, his wide range of interests in physics and his aggressive personality. He fought his way to a scientific career in London from humble beginnings as a surveyor, railroad engineer and schoolteacher. At his height, from the 1860s to the early 1880s, he juggled several different roles in addition to his principal appointment as professor of natural philosophy at (...)

    An ‘Experimental’ Instrument: Testing the Torsion Balance in Britain, Canada and Australia.Katharine Anderson - 2019 - Annals of Science 76 (1):58-86.
    ABSTRACTThe torsion balance, an instrument that was first developed to demonstrate the high precision of physical science in the laboratory became a different sort of demonstration instrument in its brief vogue in the 1920s. This article considers intersecting stories of acquiring and testing the torsion balance as a field instrument in Canada, Britain and Australia. It examines the purchasing trip and fieldwork of A. H. Miller of the Dominion Observatory in 1928–1931, testing conducted by the British Geological Survey in 1926–1930, (...)
