Investigating the Role of Muscle-derived BDNF in Neuromuscular Disease Pathology
Drawing on literature and History, particularly the History of Education, this interdisciplinary study combines several disparate bodies of scholarship to accomplish four major goals: to reposition internationally renowned author Maria Edgeworth as a vital advocate of science and scientific literacy for children; to recover two female authors, Harriet Beaufort and Louisa Beaufort, who have been lost to the bibliographical, literary, and historical records; to explore the intellectual and creative influences that these three women had on each other; and to analyze through Edgeworth's popular children's book HARRY AND LUCY, CONCLUDED (1825) the impact that these women had on juvenile science books in the Anglo-American world of the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
