Eric Gurevitch

National Endowment for the Humanities Collaborative Humanities Postdoctoral Fellow

I am a National Endowment for the Humanities Postdoctoral Fellow at Vanderbilt University. At Vanderbilt, I teach Environmental Humanities and am affiliated with the Asian Studies Program. My research aims to tell a more global history of science in which unexpected voices, practices and events come to stand alongside more standard narratives.

In 2022, I received a PhD from the University of Chicago conferred jointly by the Department of South Asian Languages & Civilizations and the Committee on the Conceptual & Historical Studies of Science . My dissertation was awarded the Dissertation Award on the Formation of Knowledge from the University of Chicago and the Mohini Jain Presidential Chair in Jain Studies Best Dissertation Award from the Department of Religious Studies at the University of California, Davis.

I am currently working on a monograph titled Everyday Sciences: Making Knowledge Local in South Asia, which builds on my dissertation research.
