About Kele

I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Minnesota’s Program in the History of Science, Technology, & Medicine. I focus upon the history of biology, particularly early 20th century evolution and genetics. My current project revolves around experimental evolution, particularly in the early 20th century, but also covers later developments. I also have a fascination with birds and with the prairie so I will blog about those topics when I can in order to satisfy that curiosity.

  1. Hey,

    I appreciate your comments on Psycasm, and you’ve expressed in word what I failed to:

    “… there are not many serious undergraduate science bloggers so I hope my position can offer a unique perspective – a serious and active learner”

    Keep up the good work.


  2. Hi Kele. Thanks so much for reading my book. I’m so glad that it inspired you to think about beliefs in a different way.

    A double major in biology and history? Be careful, you might find yourself a complete convert to the history of science!

    Nice blog too.


    • Don’t worry – I’m already having that struggle!

      Your book has been very thought-provoking – I particularly like your discussion of the historiography of the Synthesis as it gives me a look at what it takes to be a historian in this particular field. There are also so many citations to check out!

      Thanks for the encouragement!


      P.S. WordPress.com’s spam filter withheld your comment for some reason. Hopefully that won’t happen again.


  3. Hi there, fantastic blog. PZ clued me in with the Mortenson stuff. You’ve got way more stuff than I do. I can’t handle that much raw stoopid.

    I’ve got a that you might like as well. Take a look at ogremk5.wordpress.com

    If you like, I’d appreciate a link.



  4. I enjoyed your Spencer-Weismann post very much. I’m a history of science phd student at Hopkins, and I study the history of evolutionary theory in the late 19th century. We should email about our shared interests – shoot me an email at rnash2 [at] jhu [dot] edu and we can talk more.
