Teaching fellows to join Dibner Institute
The Dibner Institute for the History of Science and Technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has awarded fellowships to Luis Campos and Abena Dove Osseo-Asare, both teaching fellows in the Department of the History of Science at Harvard.
At the institute, Campos will continue work on his dissertation on the strong connection between radioactivity and the origins of life in the first decades of the 20th century. Osseo-Asare will further pursue her research, “Representing Poison: Scientists, Healers and the Transformation of Plant Medicine in Ghana (1850-2000),” which examines the interactions between scientists and healers vying for control of information on therapeutic plants.
Both graduates of Harvard College, Campos and Osseo-Asare are two of seven graduate students to be named fellows by the institute for the 2004-05 academic year.
