Thomas Simpson is a research fellow at Gonville and Caius College and research associate at the department of history, University of Cambridge. His research lies at the intersection of imperial history, the history of South Asia (and its borderlands), the history of science, environmental history, and historical geography. It centres on colonial knowledge of space, environment, and people during the long nineteenth century, looking especially at how information was produced, communicated, and contested in ‘field sciences’ such as cartography and anthropology.

Join us to hear about his current research project ‘Making Climate History’ which is examining changing understandings of climate across various scientific disciplines and diverse sites around the globe from c.1780 to c.1980.

This talk is part of the King's Silk Roads series.
