Picturing nature : American nineteenth-century zoological illustration by Ann Shelby Blum( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Systematic zoology and its illustration developed within the social context of divergent definitions of science and art, maintains Blum, and the production of zoological illustration reflected the division of labor and demotion of technique at work in society at large. She examines how zoology, in consolidating its self-definition as a profession, also consolidated certain conventions of pictorial representation for its own use, and how developments in printing exerted pressures on the discipline to adopt new technologies and mediums. Her focus on pictorial convention and disciplinary practice gives historical depth to recent sociological approaches to twentieth-century scientific illustration that challenge the traditional supremacy of theory in science studies
Children without parents law, charity and social practice, Mexico City, 1867-1940 by Ann Shelby Blum( )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This dissertation examines the experience of poor children outside their families in Mexico City through the lens of public welfare, from the Restored Republic in 1867 through the 1930s, the decade of consolidation of the Mexican Revolution's social program. Analysis of law, organization and clienteles of public orphanages, and community circulation of children provides a complex view of the interactions between family practice and the expanding state sphere
