131 John Munroe HallNewark, DE 19716<div class="ExternalClass2DDE563A83F64BCBAE38A24EC8FCD6DD"><p><strong>Geoff Bil</strong> completed his Ph.D. at the University of British Columbia, with research interests in the relationship between vernacular and scientific knowledge in imperial contexts<em>. </em>His doctoral thesis <em>Indexing the Indigenous: Plants, Peoples and Empire in the Long Nineteenth Century</em>, analyzes indigenous and European botany in Aotearoa New Zealand. His follow-up project at NYBG, <em>Fields of Empire: Science, Ethnoscience and the Making of the American Century</em>, looks at ethnobotany and ethnoecology in Southeast Asia and Latin America, from 1900 to the present. This research is particularly concerned with connections and contrasts between anthropologically refined ethnoscientific studies of the post-World War II period and an earlier, more economically focused, paradigm. He has a forthcoming article in the <em>British Journal for the History of Science</em>, numerous book reviews, and blogs at <em>The Clover and the Fern.</em></p></div>gbil@udel.eduBil, Geoffrey<img alt="" src="/Images%20Bios/faculty/Geoff-Bil.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />Assistant Professor
