The Theater of Experiment

Staging Natural Philosophy in Eighteenth-Century Britain

Al Coppola

  • The first study of the relationship of science, spectacle, and the theater in Restoration and Enlightenment culture
  • Demonstrates heretofore unrecognized importance of women authors and audiences for the establishment of modern science
  • The first sustained interpretation of early pantomimes outside of literary/theatrical frame
  • Makes the controversial claim that late eighteenth-century elite science reorients itself around female spectatorial subjectivity
