Prof. Dr. Staffan Müller-Wille and Prof. Dr. Elena Esayev are visiting the Science Studies Colloquium Series. 

Müller- Wille is Associate Professor in the History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences at the University of Exeter, His research covers the history of the life sciences from the early modern period to the early twentieth century, with a focus on the history of natural history, anthropology, and genetics. Among more recent publications is a book co-authored with Hans-Jörg Rheinberger on The Gene: From Genetics to Postgenomics (2018) and an article on “Names and Numbers: ‘Data’ in Classical Natural History,1758–1859” in Osiris (Vol. 32, 2017).

Prof. Dr. Elena Isayev is Professor of Ancient History and Place at the University of Exeter. Her work addresses questions of migration, belonging, displacement, encounter, politics of exception and spatial perception from a longue durée perspective that includes current concerns. Investigations, drawing primarily on the ancient Mediterranean, range from  histories of pre-Roman Italy through material remains (Lucania 2007) to confronting conceptual issues of mobility (Migration Mobility and Place in Ancient Italy, Cambridge, 2017).
