German Naturalists in the Pacific around 1800: Entanglement, Autonomy, and a Transnational Culture of Expertise (Book Section)
Title: German Naturalists in the Pacific around 1800: Entanglement, Autonomy, and a Transnational Culture of Expertise
Author: Andreas W. Daum
Abstract: Although no German nation-state existed around 1800, German-speaking naturalists played an important role in the large-scale Pacific explorations that the major European powers launched between c. 1750 and 1830. While entangled in the interests of these powers, individuals such as Georg Steller, Georg Forster, Otto von Kotzebue, and others retained an intellectual independence. They served as mediators between different cultures, created transnational networks of knowledge, and contributed to the global traffic of ideas and material objects.
