Forskningspresentation av Cynthia J. Browne, Max-Planck-Institute for the History of Science, Berlin. 


This presentation explores the grammar and logic of environmental exposure through attention to noise. Tracing the transductions through which noise becomes registered within environments of underground mining, this talk discusses how the uncertainties and difficulties its ephemeral temporality poses as it becomes an epistemic thing within a science of exposure in the mid-twentieth century.
