James Sumner’s web presence



I'm a lecturer in the history of technology at the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine, University of Manchester. On this website, I've collected links and documents relating to my work, mostly in the history of brewing science and the history of computing.

My book, Brewing Science, Technology and Print, 1700-1880, is out now.

Here's a list of things I've published.

If you've found me through the walks, talks and advisory work I've done for science festivals and other events, you might be interested in my public activities page.

A blind thermometer is the title of my fairly-dormant blog. Please note the usual disclaimer about opinions being my own, etc.
