About the Speaker

Anastasia Day is a Hagley Scholar and doctoral candidate at the University of Delaware. She joins the Science History Institute after spending the summer and fall as a predoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian Institution. Her talk will summarize her dissertation progress to date, and expound upon her research hypotheses and plans for her time in Philadelphia. She welcomes feedback and recommendations of resources from the Institute’s community.

About the Series

Brown Bag Lectures (BBLs) are a series of (mostly) weekly, informal talks on the history of chemistry or related subjects, including the history and social studies of science, technology, and medicine. Based on original research (sometimes still in progress), these talks are given by local scholars for an audience of the Institute staff and fellows and interested members of the public.
