Linnaean Scholars Out of Doors: So Much to Name, Learn and Profit From
Dalarna University, School of Humanities and Media Studies, History.
2018 (English)In: Naturalists in the Field: Collecting, Recording and Preserving the Natural World from the Fifteenth to the Twenty-First Century / [ed] Arthur MacGregor, Leiden: Brill Academic Publishers, 2018, 1, p. 240-257Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The multifunctional role of fieldwork in Sweden in the eighteenth century is here elaborated upon. Linnaeus’s methods for teaching outdoors in the early modern period are explored, as also are the significant overlaps between using the field for the purposes of education and for exploration. Alternative, extra-scientific motives for studying nature outdoors are also discussed, including the social implication of fieldwork, the formation of a scholarly community and the enhancement of careers, as well the connection between politics, economy and the outdoors in eighteenth-century Sweden and elsewhere.
