Summary, etc.:
"Science and technology have shaped not only economic empires and industrial landscapes, but also the identities, anxieties, and understandings of people living in modern times. Made Modern: Science and Technology in Canadian History explores the complex interconnections between science, technology, and modernity in Canada. It draws together leading scholars from a wide range of fields to enrich our understanding of history inside and outside Canada's borders. Organized around three key themes - bodies, technologies, and environments - the book's chapters examine how science and technology have allowed Canadians to imagine and reshape themselves as modern. Focusing on topics as varied as colonial anthropology, scientific expeditions, electrotherapy, the occult sciences, industrial development, telephony, patents, neuroscience, aviation, space science, and infrastructure, the contributors explore Canadians' modern engagements with science and technology and situate them within larger national and transnational developments. The first major collection of its kind in thirty years, Made Modern explores the place of science and technology in shaping Canadians' experience of themselves and their place in the modern world."-- Provided by publisher.
