research overview

  • Dr. Murphy's research explores the interactions between science, literature, and the arts in modern France, Haiti, and the Atlantic world. His work has appeared in artUS, SubStance, Épistémocritique, and Contemporary French and Francophone Studies/Sites. He has recently completed his first book, The Art and Science of the Electromagnetic Age, which examines how the discovery of electromagnetism in 1820 led to the emergence of a new model to conceptualize difference and relation that revolutionized scientific and artistic production during the nineteenth century. His next book project, Science after the Haitian Revolution, explores the legacy of the Haitian Revolution (1791-1804) in the modern conception, production, and representation of scientific knowledge.
