Kuang-chi Hung received his PhD in the history of science from Harvard University in 2013, and carried on his postdoctoral research at the Smithsonian Institution and Needham Research Institute, respectively. He is now an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography, National Taiwan University. Hung’s research concerns the history of evolutionary theory, the history of geography, and the geography of scientific knowledge. Currently he is revising his dissertation, under the title “Finding Patterns in Nature: Asa Gray’s Plant Geography and Collecting Networks,” for publication, and initiating a new project tentatively titled “China as a field,” which deals with the Smithsonian Institution’s archaeological expeditions in China during the early twentieth century.
