Charlotte Sleigh is a researcher, writer and practitioner across the science humanities. Her research interests began in the history of biology, and have continued as such with an emphasis on animals.  Her books on this topic are Ant (Reaktion, 2003); Six Legs Better: A Cultural History of Myrmecology (Johns Hopkins, 2007); Frog, (Reaktion, 2012); Cosmopolitan Animals (co-editor, Palgrave, 2015), The Paper Zoo (British Library/Chicago, 2016) and Human (Reaktion 2020; with Amanda Rees). Besides this, she has written widely on the historical and textual relationships between science and writing (Literature and Science, Palgrave 2010).  She continues to develop her work on twentieth-century history of science (Scientific Governance in Britain, 1914-79, MUP 2016, co-edited with Don Leggett) and in particular its intersections with science fiction.  In more recent years Charlotte has been involved with Art and Science projects (Chain Reaction!, 2013 and Metamorphoses, 2017) and climate science communication. She is a former editor of the British Journal for the History of Science and current president of the British Society for the History of Science.
