In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Contributors nancy anderson is assistant professor of visual studies at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Her research interests are nineteenth- and twentieth-century scientific and medical imaging technologies and the use of images and physical models in biological research. She has published on such topics as the early use of the image intensifier in cell biology and the study of bioluminescence as well as on the use of Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome as a scientific model for virus studies. She is currently writing a book entitled The Scale of the Event: Science Image Model, 1945–1965, which will explore the problem of scale in the emerging field of molecular biology and its imaging and modeling practices. sabine brauckmann is senior researcher at the Estonian Institute of Humanities of Tallinn University (Estonia). Her primary interest is in studying the epistemic history of embryos and cells in text and images from around 1800 to the 1960s. She coedited Graphing Genes, Cells and Embryos (2009) and worked with Scott F. Gilbert on embryonic cells in Gustav Klimt’s paintings (Fertilization Narratives in the Art of Gustav Klimt, Diego Rivera, and Frieda Kahlo, 2011). Most recently she initiated a trans-disciplinary network between University of Tartu and the Estonian Academy of Sciences, focusing on environmental humanities and, in particular, on the cultural and visual history of “plant-spaces” in the nineteenth century. t. hugh crawford is an associate professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he teaches in the Science, Technology and Culture program. He is the author of Modernism, Medicine and William Carlos Williams, past-president of the Society for Literature, Science and the Arts, and former editor of Configurations. His current research in is culture, cognition, and tool use, and he is writing a book tentatively entitled Treeontology. scott curtis is associate professor of Radio/Television/Film at Northwestern University , where he teaches film theory and history. He is primarily interested in the institutional appropriation of motion pictures, such as educational filmmaking or the use of moving image technology as a scientific research tool or diagnostic instrument.

His research takes an interdisciplinary approach to scientific controversies in twentieth-century biology. He has authored numerous articles on the history of evolutionary genetics and is currently completing a biography of the exiled German biologist Richard Goldschmidt. He also recently coedited Rebels, Mavericks, and Heretics in Biology (Yale University Press, 2008) with Oren Harman. He is also an adjunct senior scientist at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, Massachusetts. michael j. golec is associate professor of the history of design at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is the 2011 Anschutz Distinguished Fellow in American Studies at Princeton University. Golec’s scholarship focuses on twentieth-century design in the United States as it intersects with the history of art, the history of technology and science, and philosophical aesthetics. While his interests range across and touch on all manner of designed objects, Golec’s research emphasizes graphic design, visual communications, and print culture. He is the author of Brillo Box Archive: Aesthetics , Design, and Art (Dartmouth College Press, 2008) and, along with Aron Vinegar, coedited and contributed to Relearning from Las Vegas (University of Minnesota Press, 2009). richard l. kremer is associate professor of history at Dartmouth College, where he teaches history of science, especially its material culture, and curates the King Collection of Historic Scientific Instruments. His review of nineteenth- and twentiethcentury physiology appeared in The Cambridge History of Science, vol. 6 (2009). He has also published articles on the apparatus of high-speed photography and the early development of the American electronics industry, especially the General Radio Company of Cambridge, Massachusetts. mara mills, assistant professor of media, culture, and communication at New York University, trained in biology (MA) and history of science (PhD) at Harvard University. Working at the intersection of disability studies and media studies, she is currently completing a book on the historical relationship between the telephone system, deafness, and signal processing. A former high school biology teacher, she also has a particular interest in visual...
