Are you looking for an opportunity network with and learn from other scholars in the history of science, technology and medicine? Consider joining one the scholarly working groups—such as Human Sciences and Medicine and Health—hosted by The Consortium for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine. Each group is run by conveners who coordinate discussion of secondary readings as well as works in progress. Groups typically meet once a month. You may participate on site in Philadelphia or remotely from the comfort of your home. Everyone is welcome!
Two groups of particular interest to h-madness include:
- Human Sciences (Jamie Cohen-Cole and Greg Eghigian, conveners)
- Medicine and Health (David Barnes, Paul Theerman, Nancy Tomes, and Keith Wailoo, conveners)
Recent topics covered by the Human Sciences group include a discussion of “Psychology and its Publics,” a special issue published in History of the Human Sciences, and reflections on the future of the history of anthropology.
