Crowdfunding Project Cityscapes & Earth Debates

As part of a Cartography and Mapping Grants Challenge, HSTM Network Ireland member Tanya O’Sullivan has launched a crowdfunding project to raise 500 dollars in 30 days to help start a research project on:

Cityscapes and Earth Debates: Fashioning the Geosphere in Nineteenth-Century Ireland.

This project maps the course of scientific ideas as they navigate the cultural landscape of nineteenth-century Ireland. It is primarily concerned with the relationship between scientific knowledge and urban space and takes as its theme the mid nineteenth-century discourse on earth sciences in Ireland. It assesses the crucial significance of city-lives, space and place on contemporary discussions around the age, structure and evolution of the earth.

We hope that this exposure as part of the Cartography and Mapping Grant Challenge on experiment.com will help to promote the history of science  within science and bring Irish HSTM research to a wider audience. There is a facility to provide ‘lab notes’ or updates on the project as the work progresses, and backers can discuss and become involved in the research as well as being acknowledged in the final article.

Please share this link to the project page with HSTM people or anyone who might be interested, and feel free to donate, even $5 will help!
