Thomas Biskup’s project combines the history of political culture and the history of science to examine a global web of exchanges and dependencies in the field of natural history, which linked Germany, Britain, and parts of America, Africa, and Asia in the eighteenth century. Britain’s European and transoceanic interconnections will be highlighted, as will the patterns by which Germans interacted with the extra-European world.
