Cain Curatorial Fellow
Judy Kaplan is a cultural and intellectual historian of the human sciences with a focus on 19th- and 20th-century linguistic research. She has published on subjects from orientalism to sound studies, and is currently working on two projects: one examines labor in the history of science, and the other concerns research on language universals. Her work has been supported by the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the National Science Foundation, and the Consortium for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine. She is eagerly pursuing new knowledge of information science and the curatorial field at the Science History Institute.
