2Title:  Mapping Israel, mapping Palestine: how occupied landscapes shape scientific knowledge   
 Creator:  Bier, Jess, 1980- 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 225-291) and index. Maps are widely believed to be objective, and data-rich computer-made maps are iconic examples of digital knowledge. It is often claimed that digital maps, and rational boundaries, can solve political conflict. But Jess Bier challenges the view that digital maps are universal and value-free. She examines the ways that maps are made in Palestine and Israel to show how social and political landscapes shape the practice of science and technology. How can two scientific cartographers look at the same geographic feature and see fundamentally different things? In part, Bier argues, because knowledge about the Israeli military occupation is shaped by the occupation itself. Ongoing injustices--including checkpoints, roadblocks, and summary arrests--mean that Palestinian and Israeli cartographers have different experiences of the landscape. Palestinian forms of empirical knowledge, including maps, continue to be discounted. Bier examines three representative cases of population, governance, and urban maps. She analyzes Israeli population maps from 1967 to 1995, when Palestinian areas were left blank; Palestinian state maps of the late 1990s and early 2000s, which were influenced by Israeli raids on Palestinian offices and the legacy of British colonial maps; and urban maps after the Second Intifada, which show how segregated observers produce dramatically different maps of the same area. The geographic production of knowledge, including what and who are considered scientifically legitimate, can change across space and time.

14Title:  Urban histories of science: making knowledge in the city, 1820-1940   
 Creator:  Hochadel, Oliver, 1968- | Nieto-Galan, Agustí 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. "This book tells ten urban histories of science from nine cities - Athens, Barcelona, Budapest, Buenos Aires, Dublin (2 articles), Glasgow, Helsinki, Lisbon, and Naples - situated on the geographical margins of Europe and beyond. Ranging from the mid-nineteenth to the early twentieth centuries, the contents of this volume debate why and how we should study the scientific culture of cities, often considered 'peripheral' in terms of their production of knowledge. How were scientific practices, debates and innovations intertwined with the highly dynamic urban space around 1900? The authors analyze zoological gardens, research stations, observatories and international exhibitions, along with hospitals, newspapers, back streets and private homes while also stressing the importance of concrete urban spaces for the production and appropriation of knowledge. They uncover the diversity of actors and urban publics ranging from engineers, scientists, architects and physicians to journalists, tuberculosis patients and fishermen. Looking at these nine cities around 1900 is like glancing at a prism that produces different and even conflicting notions of modernity. In their attempt to modernize themselves they were torn between their desire to be 'cosmopolitan' and the surge of nationalism. In their totality, the ten case studies help to overcome an outdated centre-periphery-model. This volume is thus able to address far more intriguing historiographical questions. How do science, technology and medicine shape the debates about modernity and national identity in the urban space? To what degree do cities and the heterogeneous elements they contain have agency? These Urban Histories show that science and the city are consistently and continuously co-constructing each other"--Provided by publisher.

17Title:  Visual voyages: images of Latin American nature from Columbus to Darwin   
 Creator:  Bleichmar, Daniela, 1973- | Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery | Yale University Press | Getty Foundation 
 Notes:  Published on the occasion of an exhibition held at the Huntington Library, Art Gallery, and Botanical Gardens September 16, 2017-January 8, 2018. "Published witht the assistance of the Getty Foundation." Includes bibliographgical references (pages 207-218) and index. "From the voyages of Christopher Columbus to those of Alexander von Humboldt and Charles Darwin, the depiction of the natural world played a central role in shaping how people on both sides of the Atlantic understood and imaged the region we now know as Latin America. Nature provided incentives for exploration, commodities for trade, specimens for scientific investigation, and manifestations of divine forces. It also yielded a rich trove of representations, created both by natives to the region and visitors, which are the subject of this lushly illustrated book. Author Daniela Bleichmar shows that these images were not only works of art but also instruments for the production of knowledge, with scientific, social, and political repercussions. Early depictions of Latin American nature introduced European audiences to native medicines and religious practices. By the 17th century, revelatory accounts of tobacco, chocolate, and cochineal reshaped science, trade, and empire around the globe. In the 18th and 19th centuries, collections and scientific expeditions produced both patriotic and imperial visions of Latin America."--Book jacket.

18Title:  Knowledge and religion in early modern Europe: studies in honor of Michael Heyd   
 Creator:  Ben-Tov, Asaph. | Deutsch, Yaacov. | Herzig, Tamar. | Heyd, Michael. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references. "The interplay between knowledge and religion forms a pivotal component of how early modern individuals and societies understood themselves and their surroundings. Knowledge of the self in pursuit of salvation, humanistic knowledge within a confessional education, as well as inherently subversive knowledge acquired about religion(s) offer instructive instances of this interplay. To these are added essays on medical knowledge in its religious and social contexts, the changing role of imagination in scientific thought, the philosophical and political problems of representation, and attempts to counter Enlightenment criteria of knowledge at the end of the period, serving here as multifaceted studies of the dynamics and shifts in sensitivity and stress in the interplay between knowledge and religion within evolving early modern contexts."--Publisher's website.

20Title:  Graphesis: visual forms of knowledge production   
 Creator:  Drucker, Johanna, 1952- 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (page 215). Graphesis provides a descriptive critical language for the analysis of graphical knowledge. In an interdisciplinary study fusing digital humanities with media studies and graphic design history, Drucker outlines the principles by which visual formats organize meaningful content. Among the most significant of these formats is the graphical user interface (GUI), the dominant feature of the screens of nearly all consumer electronic devices. Because so much of our personal and professional lives is mediated through visual interfaces, it is important to start thinking critically about how they shape knowledge, our behavior, and even our identity. Drucker makes the case for studying visuality from a humanistic perspective, exploring how graphic languages can serve fields where qualitative judgments take priority over quantitative statements of fact. Graphesis offers a new epistemology of the ways we process information, embracing the full potential of visual forms and formats of knowledge production.
