This time however the old hand's gestural knowledge was displaced. Practitioners of the new system of electrical engineering trusted firmly in their performances of work with new material technologies and corresponding body techniques. BREWERS CHANGING TACT In the 1840s, the brewery was the site of a rare and unevenly distributed 'practical knowledge' of heat measurement. Furthermore, to a large extent, this community was still an oral culture in which most practices were communicated through apprenticeship.

Therefore for Joule it became a problem more to demonstrate the reliability of his work than to perform the experiment. His move from private to public confronted him with culturally shared standards which he had to match. H. Ouo Sibum 35 WRITING A BODY OF TEXT When Joule started to write about his experiences in experimenting on the nature of heat he wanted to present himself as a natural philosopher. However, the nature of his work on the mechanical value of heat put him in an awkward position.

Therefore it would be more advantageous for Joule to distance himself from this particular gestural collective. In order to make his local experimental work a transparent natural phenomenon and to make himself the authority, Joule had to invent convincing demonstration devices. Second, accurate measurement was not at all regarded as the major precondition for demonstrating a natural phenomenon. Michael Faraday, for example, worked very hard to make an experiment transparent so that the techniques and the equipment employed appeared to contribute nothing to the outcome.
