Three Harvard doctoral candidates receive Dibner Fellowships from MIT

The Dibner Institute for the History of Science and Technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has awarded fellowships to three Harvard doctoral candidates in the Department of the History of Science.

At the institute, Jeremiah James will work on two projects: the first, to prepare two chapters of his dissertation on Linus Pauling for publication, and the second, a history of the early years of X-ray crystallography and its progress to routine laboratory technology; Jean-François Gauvin will work on his thesis “Epistemic Organon: Artisans, Savants, and the Material Culture of Natural Philosophy in 17th Century France”; and Elly Truitt will work on her dissertation, a cultural and intellectual study of medieval automata in Western Europe, 1100-1550.
