Nicole Howard

Nicole Howard, a professor of history at Eastern Oregon University, received her Ph.D. in the History and Philosophy of Science from Indiana University. Her work examines the relationship between print culture and Renaissance science. Dr. Howard’s first book was The Book: The Life Story of a Technology, a brief history of books in western culture. A sabbatical five years ago gave her time to develop her ideas around scientific communication in the 16th and 17th centuries, and that research gave rise to her most recent book, Loath to Print.
