Context, Connections and Culture: The History of Science in Canada as a Field of Study

Part of the Archimedes book series (ARIM, volume 52)


This celebration of the broad range of Professor Trevor Levere’s scholarship as a historian of science offers a welcome opportunity to highlight a few of his many contributions to our understanding of the Canadian historical experience of science, and to engage with some challenges that remain. Among the first to offer an overview of the field, Professor Levere earned the admiration – and influenced the work – of many who followed. Themes of context, connection, and culture permeates his influential contributions to the history of science in Canada, inspiring inquiries into ways of moving forward our historically (and historiographically) bound understanding. In a field that remains chronically under-researched, where do we go from here?
