9780226235844: Making Marie Curie: Intellectual Property and Celebrity Culture in an Age of Information (science.culture)

In many ways, Marie Curie represents modern science. Her considerable lifetime achievements the first woman to be awarded a Nobel Prize, the only woman to be awarded the Prize in two fields, and the only person to be awarded Nobel Prizes in multiple sciences are studied by schoolchildren across the world. When, in 2009, the New Scientist carried out a poll for the Most Inspirational Female Scientist of All Time,” the result was a foregone conclusion: Marie Curie trounced her closest runner-up, Rosalind Franklin, winning double the number of Franklin’s votes. She is a role model to women embarking on a career in science, the pride of two nations Poland and France and, not least of all, a European Union brand for excellence in science.

Making Marie Curie explores what went into the creation of this icon of science. It is not a traditional biography, or one that attempts to uncover the real” Marie Curie. Rather, Eva Hemmungs Wirtén, by tracing a career that spans two centuries and a world war, provides an innovative and historically grounded account of how modern science emerges in tandem with celebrity culture under the influence of intellectual property in a dawning age of information. She explores the emergence of the Curie persona, the information culture of the period that shaped its development, and the strategies Curie used to manage and exploit her intellectual property. How did one create and maintain for oneself the persona of scientist at the beginning of the twentieth century? What special conditions bore upon scientific women, and on married women in particular? How was French identity claimed, established, and subverted? How, and with what consequences, was a scientific reputation secured?

In its exploration of these questions and many more, Making Marie Curie provides a composite picture not only of the making of Marie Curie, but the making of modern science itself.

Review:

2015 Editors' Spring Pick

"Hemmungs Wirtén explores how the most recognized female scientist managed her 'brand.' In shaping her public persona, Marie Curie (1867–1934) had to balance not only her roles as researcher and wife and mother but also issues of nationalism and an agenda that straddled the pure and applied sciences." (Library Journal)

"In Making Marie Curie, Eva Hemmungs Wirtén shows how biographers and polularizers, including Curie herself, fashioned the woman born Marya Sklodowska in 1867 into an enduring scientific persona. . . . If the legend of Marie Curie represents the aspirations of modern science, Making Marie Curie shows how a diverse range of people, from biographers to philanthropists to Curie herself, created these aspirations in the first place." (Evan Hepler-Smith Wall Street Journal)

"Marie Curie remains the most famous of female scientists. In the analysis of how the co-discoverer of radium became uniquely idolized, cultural scholar Eva Hemmungs Wirtén uses the prisms of celebrity and intellectual property—Curie and her husband, Pierre, having famously refused to patent radium. Wirtén's picture of a scientist carefully shaping her own image is less angelic than the traditional view of Curie, but might have much to teach her modern successors." (Daniel Cressey Nature)

"In light of current constraints on research funding, and the debate over who should pay for scientific and other content, Wirtén’s excellent account of the complexity of the 1930s intellectual property debate is timely. . . . Using Curie as the vehicle for discussion on all the themes in this thought-provoking book is a strategy that enables Wirtén to draw a far more complex portrait than that of the legendary wife patiently stirring radioactive pitchblende, content to remain in her husband’s shadow." (Robyn Arianrhod Times Higher Education)

"Making Marie Curie offers insight into how Curie herself took charge of her intellectual property, including her own persona—both shaping and reflecting a rapidly changing world, in which a new capacity for celebrity raised fresh challenges about the management of information. It is the interweaving of the persona Curie cultivated, together with the conscious role she played on the international stage through her participation in the International Commission, Wirten argues, that established Curie’s prominence in the historical record of twentieth-century science. This account offers a fresh perspective on Curie’s strength as an institution builder, a networked collaborator, and a woman quite aware and protective of her own intellectual property. In sum, her intellectual achievements and career contributions together offer a profile that indeed justifies thinking of the early twentieth century as the Age of Curie." (Sally Gregory Kohlstedt Women's Review of Books)

"This biography by Hemmungs Wirtén presents significant yet little-known issues involving the scientific enterprise and women’s position in the early 1900s in Europe and America." (Choice)

"Beautifully written, at times delightfully witty, and exemplary throughout for its close readings, Making Marie Curie provides much for a new generation to read and ruminate on and reveals just how much more there may be yet to say about this celebrated scientist. La tête tourne!" (Isis)

"A powerful and coherent argument....Hemmungs Wirtén has succeeded in casting fresh light not only on Curie’s own career but also on the development of modern attitudes towards ownership of knowledge about the natural world. In this clearly written, thoroughly researched and originally oriented exposé, Hemmungs Wirtén reveals how Curie’s own brand achieved far greater international recognition." (Patricia Fara The British Journal for the History of Science)

"A compellingly argued book that's also a pleasure to read." (Carla Nappi New Books in Science, Technology, and Society)

"Fascinating--delving into issues including but not limited to public versus private persona, intellectual property, decisions surrounding whether to patent inventions, women’s rights and autonomy, and French and American laws. Perhaps the only good way to describe this book is as a book you didn’t know you wanted to read. . . . A fascinating book that would be great for history of science, history of intellectual property, and intellectual property survey classes." (Raizel Liebler, Harvard University The Learned Fangirl)
