About Vera Keller
Vera Keller is an associate professor with the UO Department of History and a 2018-19 OHC Faculty Research Fellow. Her work primarily focuses on the history of science in early Modern Europe. Keller’s first book, Knowledge and the Public Interest, 1575-1725 (Cambridge, 2015), explored the once novel idea, now a truism, that knowledge should “serve the public interest.” She has also authored or co-authored numerous articles, most recently, “Deprogramming Baconianism: The meaning of desiderata in the eighteenth century” for Notes and Records: the Royal Society Journal of the History of Science.
