Lynn Nyhart's research is focused on the history of biology in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, primarily in Europe. She is especially interested in the history of investigation into the organization of living things, the social organization of the sciences that study them, and relations between elite and popular science. Her current research examines the history of ideas about biological individuality, parts, and wholes in nineteenth-century Europe, and their relationship to broader cultural and political movements. Beyond her research, she is interested in rethinking how the discipline of the history of science should situate itself in relation to other disciplines and within our larger culture. Nyhart is the Vilas-Bablitch-Kelch Distinguished Achievement Professor in the Department of the History of Science at UW-Madison.
