The Society for the Advancement of Scandinavian Study is happy to announce the winner of the 2017 Haugen Scholarship is Charlotte A. Abney Salomon.
Charlotte is a Ph.D. student in the Department of History and in the History of Science and Medicine program at Yale University. Ms. Salomon is researching Swedish chemistry at the turn of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth century.
Paola Bertucci, Associate Professor, Yale University states, “Charlotte’s dissertation will cast light on the intriguing relationship between the Swedish state’s interest in mining and mineralogy and the development of chemical practices, instruments, and theories.”
William Rankin, Associate Profession, Yale University further states, “Charlotte’s dissertation project is exciting for several reasons. By rooting early Swedish mineralogy and chemistry in the mining industry and the state mining apparatus, her project sits at the emerging intersection of the history of science and the history of capitalism.”
