Jane Murphy

Jane examines scientific practices and practitioners in 18th-century Cairo, from Ottoman rule through the French occupation. Her study considers the cultural and intellectual roles of the sciences in the early modern Ottoman Empire more broadly and in European colonialism. She has presented and published recently on the topics of 18th-century French and Egyptian conceptions of the sciences and governance and on aspects of the “Islamization of Knowledge” project, particularly in relationship to the sciences and social sciences.
