We are delighted to learn that Leah Knight‘s book Of Books and Botany in Early Modern England has been shortlisted for this year’s British Society for Literature and Science book prize.
Two other Ashgate books: Bernadette Hofer‘s Psychosomatic Disorders in Seventeenth-Century French Literature and Bernard Kuhn’s Autobiography and Natural Science in the Age of Romanticism were also considered to be strong contenders.
The prize itself will be announced at the BSLS conference, which is taking place at Northumbria University on April 8th-10th. Ashgate will be attending the conference, and we will have copies of these books (and some others!) on display.
Confirmed keynote speakers are John Dupré, Professor of Philosophy of Science at Exeter University; Nick Daly, Professor of English Literature at University College Dublin; and Patricia Waugh, Professor of English Literature at Durham University.
