    Imagining Uses for Things: Teaching “Useful Knowledge” in the Early Eighteenth Century.Kelly J. Whitmer - 2017 - History of Science 55 (1):37-60.
    There has been an explosion of interest in “innovation-oriented knowledge” and utility in early modern knowledge economies. Despite this, a healthy skepticism surrounding the category of “useful knowledge” persists, at least in part because of its association with intentional concealment. Helpful in many ways, this skepticism has fostered a tendency to overlook a variety of efforts to teach “useful knowledge” in the period: efforts that were anchored in engagement with the real and involved the cultivation of an ability to direct (...)

    The Model That Never Moved: The Case of a Virtual Memory Theater and Its Christian Philosophical Argument, 1700–1732.Kelly J. Whitmer - 2010 - Science in Context 23 (3):289-327.
    ArgumentBy the year 1720, one could visit at least three large-scale wooden models of Solomon's Temple in the cities of Amsterdam, Hamburg, and Halle. For short periods of time, the Amsterdam and Hamburg Temple models were exhibited in London, where they attracted a great deal of attention. The Halle model, on the other hand, never moved from its original location: a complex of schools known today as the Francke Foundations. This article explores the reasons for the Halle model's striking immobility (...)

    What's in a Name? Place, Peoples and Plants in the Danish-Halle Mission, C. 1710–1740.Kelly Joan Whitmer - 2013 - Annals of Science 70 (3):1-20.

Despite being in a position to do this work, instead they chose mostly to engage local residents in conversations about the cultures of the plants in question. These conversations revolved around the origins and meanings of plant (...)
