Ryan Patterson: I am an historian of 19th century British science, technology, and culture in colonial and imperial settings. I focus on the media coverage of expeditions into Africa during the 1860s and ‘70s, charting the influence of Victorian techno-centric ideals and views of race on the re-imagining of Africa as a colonial space.
