Members > 1.1 Contracted full-time with the UAB's History of Science

Camprubí, Lino
Ramon y Cajal Fellow
Centre for the History of Science, CEHIC


Ramón y Cajal Fellow at the CEHIC-UAB and Visiting Researcher at the Max Planck Research Group “Epistemes of Modern Acoustics.” He’s interested in intersections of science and technology with politics and philosophy. He pursues this interest through two main lines of research: first by exploring the links of engineering and political economy (mainly, but not only, in the twentieth-century Spanish context), and second by looking at the coevolution of oceanography and geopolitics with the history of the senses and maritime spaces (particularly in the Cold War Mediterranean).
