Patrick Walsh (History)
2019-2021 Top-Up Fellowship Winner
Patrick Walsh is a historian of modern biology. His current project examines the life and work of nineteenth-century French physiologist Charles Brown-Séquard, who is famous (and infamous) for his unconventional experiments on blood, nerves, glands and gonads. Brown-Séquard’s work provides an insight into how biological “life” was articulated, navigated and then defined in the nineteenth century, and how this elusive concept was translated into technologies of the body. Walsh’s project tracks how the concept of “life” changes with time, and how it persists as an ongoing intellectual issue in contemporary scientific debates.
