About REBECCA PRIESTLEYI’m a science historian and writer. I write about all sorts of things, but I’m mostly interested in New Zealand’s science history, about which I’ve curated two exhibitions, The Art of Science and Butterflies, Boffins & Black Smokers. I write a regular science column for The Listener, which you can read here, and I’ve completed four books, which you can read more about here. I’m now working on an anthology of Antarctic science, which should be finished ... soon and trying to decide between two new book projects: a worthy history of science biography and a fun contemporary science story. Perhaps I'll do both. I mostly blog when I'm adventuring - most of these posts are from recent trips to Antarctica and the Kermadec Islands.

- Now Tim Naish will offer a "science & research" perspective on #Antarctica. Gosh. Until today that was the only perspective I took notice of 2 days ago
- Nice observation by Klaus Dodds that this meeting is a lot like #Antarctica: a very white space in which there are many men and few women 2 days ago
