  1. Formation of a Research School: Theoretical Solid State Physics at Bristol 1930–54.S. T. Keith & Paul K. Hoch - 1986 - British Journal for the History of Science 19 (1):19-44.
    In June 1930 the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research of the British Government awarded a modest research grant to J. E. Lennard-Jones, Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Bristol, in response to a proposal submitted under the title of ‘A theoretical investigation of the physical properties of the solid state of matter’. This initiative marked the first notable recognition by public funding bodies in Great Britain of the potential contribution to be made by the new theoretical ideas (...)

  • Introduction: Have We Ever Been ‘Transnational’? Towards a History of Science Across and Beyond Borders.Simone Turchetti, Néstor Herran & Soraya Boudia - 2012 - British Journal for the History of Science 45 (3):319-336.
    In recent years, historians have debated the prospect of offering new ‘transnational’ or ‘global’ perspectives in their studies. This paper introduces the reader to this special issue by analysing characteristics, merits and flaws of these approaches. It then considers how historians of science have practised transnational history without, however, paying sufficient attention to the theoretical foundations of this approach. Its final part illustrates what benefits may derive from the application of transnational history in the field. In particular, we suggest looking (...)

  • Schrödinger at Oxford: A Hypothetical National Cultural Synthesis Which Failed.P. K. Hoch & E. J. Yoxen - 1987 - Annals of Science 44 (6):593-616.
    This paper considers a possible national cultural and scientific synthesis which failed to take place: namely the integration of the Central European theoretical physicist Erwin Schrödinger into the primarily experimental orientations of the Oxford physics of the 1930s. We also consider the effect of the Oxford social and intellectual atmosphere generally, incluing the persistence of previous traditions which undervalued Science relative to the Arts, and University research relative to tutorial provision in the Colleges. The Oxford situation is then briefly contrasted (...)
