Whewell’s Gazette

Your weekly digest of all the best of

Internet history of science, technology and medicine

Editor in Chief: The Ghost of William Whewell

Year 3, Volume #12

Monday 07 November 2016

EDITORIAL:

The year marches on and Whewell’s Gazette, the weekly #histSTM links list, marches with it bringing you once again all the histories of science, technology and medicine that we could scare up out of the dark recesses of cyberspace over the last seven days.

As a quick survey of our rubrics clearly shows we don’t regard #histSTM as being just confined to the written page, whether that page be old fashioned paper or actual digital, but acknowledge that aspects of #histSTM can be found in almost every medium. One particularly interesting aspect for many #histSTM fans is #histSTM exhibitions and we would like to draw your attention to two particular exhibitions featured in our Art and Exhibitions rubric.

For those lucky enough to be in New York City between now and the 19 November might care to pay a visit to the Grolier Club, which has a fascinating exhibition on the literature of timekeeping, “On Time: The Quest for Precision. Books on Time and Timekeeping from the Linda Hall Library.” Timekeeping has played a central role in both the histories of science and technology and this exhibition has received excellent reviews and will certainly be worth a visit.

For our other featured exhibition you will need to cross the ocean to London and go to the British Library, where the cartographic exhibition “ Maps and the 20th Century: Drawing the Line” has just opened and will there to fascinate you, and who isn’t fascinated by maps, until 1 March 2017. Like the history of timekeeping the history of cartography has wound its way through the histories of both science and technology for several millennia. The British Library exhibition takes a look at the last hundred years of that history:

We have selected 200 maps from our collection of 4 million maps, supplemented by a handful of crucial loans) in order to showcase their technological development, their increasing variety, and what they meant to 20th century western society.

And should provide a fascinating day out for map fans of all ages
