James Poskett awarded British Academy / Wolfson Fellowship
The British Academy / Wolfson Fellowships support early career researchers in the arts, social sciences, and humanities “who show outstanding talent in both research and public engagement and will communicate their research to a global audience.”
As part of the fellowship, Dr Poskett will be working on a project titled, “The Scientific Revolution as Global History, 1200–1800”. Stretching from Ming China to Mexica America, this project will reframe the history of early modern science as part of a global history.
This project builds on Dr Poskett’s recent book, Horizons: A Global History of Science (Penguin, 2022), which was shortlisted for the 2022 British Academy Book Prize in Global Cultural Understanding.
