This chapter argues that phrenologists used periodicals to establish different "imagined communities", ranging from the national right through to the global. In doing so, it takes a classic argument about the relationship between science and print, but demonstrates how global history can help us rethink such issues. As case studies, this chapter examines phrenological periodicals and journals in the United States, India, and South Africa.
