Nathan Bossoh is the first African collections Research Curator at the Science Museum

London where he is working on a project to help the Science Museum better understand the

provenance, significance, and future development of the (over 5000) African medical

materials gathered during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by the pharmaceutical

entrepreneur Sir Henry Wellcome. Nathan recently completed his PhD at UCL where he

focused on the cultural history of modern science and technology within Britain and its

empire through an investigation of the 8th Duke of Argyll, a well-known Victorian Christian

polymath. He has published on Victorian science, technology, and religion, and is now

writing an article which highlights the importance of material cultural studies through

museum collections as a way to uncover marginalised histories of African agency, culture,

and scientific knowledge and practice.
