Banu Subramaniam Publishes Interdisciplinary Book

ISI board member Banu Subramaniam published Ghost Stories for Darwin: The Science of Variation and the Politics of Diversity with the University of Illinois Press in October. The book brings together her work on flower color variation in morning glories and the feminist studies of sciences. The interdisciplinary book bridges the social history of plants, women's studies, evolutionary and invasive biology, and the history of ecology. Donna J. Haraway comments that Subramaniam's book "destabilizes the old exchange rates and proposes instead a wealth of narratives and experimental conceptual and laboratory practices for doing evolutionary biology, ecology, and women's studies together." The book can be found here.
