    ‘Le Centre de Toutes Choses’: Constructing and Managing Centralization on the Isle de France.Lissa Roberts - 2014 - History of Science 52 (3):319-342.
    In their recent book The colonial machine, James McClellan III and François Regourd detail how ancien regime France’s government marshalled science in the service of colonial expansion. By focusing on the local and long distance struggles to make the Isle de France a globally significant centre during the long eighteenth century, this essay suggests an alternative to McClellan and Regourd’s geography of metropolitan centre and colonial periphery, as well as their claim that the investigation of nature was tied to colonial (...)

    Exploring Global History Through the Lens of History of Chemistry: Materials, Identities and Governance.Lissa Roberts - 2016 - History of Science 54 (4):335-361.
    As global history continues to take shape as an important field of research, its interactive relationships with the history of science, technology, and medicine are recognized and being investigated as significant areas of concern. Strangely, despite the fact that it is key to understanding so many of the subjects that are central to global history and would itself benefit from a broader geographical perspective, the history of chemistry has largely been left out of this process – particularly for the modern (...)

  10. Accumulation and Management in Global Historical Perspective: An Introduction.Lissa Roberts - 2014 - History of Science 52 (3):227-246.
    This essay introduces a special issue dedicated to the theme ‘accumulation and management in global historical perspective’. The concepts and practices of accumulation and management are explored in ways that work to de-center the history of science and empire. Particular attention is paid to four intertwined elements: 1) the networked location of centres of accumulation around the world; 2) knowledge as a tool, object and consequence of accumulation; 3) the complex interactions between management and governance; and 4] the geographically dispersed (...)

    Historicizing the Crisis of Scientific Misconduct in Indian Science.Mahendra Shahare & Lissa L. Roberts - 2020 - History of Science 58 (4):485-506.
    A flurry of discussions about plagiarism and predatory publications in recent times has brought the issue of scientific misconduct in India to the fore. The debate has framed scientific misconduct in India as a recent phenomenon. This article questions that framing, which rests on the current tendency to define and police scientific misconduct as a matter of individual behavior. Without ignoring the role of individuals, this article contextualizes their actions by calling attention to the conduct of the institutions, as well (...)

    The Death of the Sensuous Chemist: The ‘New’ Chemistry and the Transformation of Sensuous Technology.Lissa Roberts - 1995 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 26 (4):503-529.
    The effect of gamma irradiation on the dislocation relaxation peak, i.e. the Bordoni peak, of high purity polycrystalline gold has been studied at frequency of 10MHz. It was found that the effect of gamma radiation is more significant in specimen irradiation at room temperature (1A) than that irradiated at liquid nitrogen temperature. The variation of the peak height, and temperature of the dislocation relaxation peak as a function of gamma doses are explained in terms of the Kink-Pair formation model.
