Welcome to my Page

My name is Joel Andrew Klein and I am a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at Indiana University. I am finishing my dissertation in Philadelphia at the Chemical Heritage Foundation. I spent two years researching in Germany, first via a DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst) grant at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science and the Freie Universität in Berlin, and prior to that, I worked in Leipzig and Halle an der Saale through a Fulbright Grant and a NSF Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant

The title of my dissertation is Chymical Medicine, Corpuscularism, and Controversy: A Study of Daniel Sennert's Works and Letters.

I have worked as an editorial assistant and laboratory technician for the Chymistry of Isaac Newton Project, where I encoded Newton's manuscripts and even recreated a variety of Isaac Newton's and Robert Boyle's actual alchemical experiments. Under "Experimental Recreations," you can see some of the work I have carried out in the laboratory.

I have taught several courses  at Indiana University: X102 Plato to Nato - Science Revolutions, and X123 Sickness and Health - The History of Medicine in the Middle Age and Renaissance. The curriculum of the latter course was fully self-designed.

I am also a contributing author at the Recipes Project.
