Women Radiobiologists and 'Standard Man' by Brad Bolman
In this issue, guest writer Olivia Rosane examines feminist responses to discriminatory scientific theories of 19th century male scientists through the science poems of May Kendall. Contributing editor Robert Davis also dives into the 19th century by looking at the politics of beauty and self-care in how-to dime novels. Lastly, guest writer Brad Bolman turns to the 20th century and uncovers the little-known and under-recognized work of Mary Jane Cook and the underlying gender politics of the 'Standard Man.'
