Victor Seow is a historian of technology, science, and industry, specializing in China and Japan and in the histories of energy and work. He is the author of "Carbon Technocracy: Energy Regimes in East Asia," a study of the relationship between energy and power through the history of East Asia's onetime largest coal mine. At present, he is writing a new book that uses the history of industrial psychology in China to chart how work functions as an object of scientific inquiry and how the sciences of work shape and are shaped by wider social discourses about the nature and value of labor.
