History of Science and Technology Hub launched

We’re delighted to announce the launch of the History of Science and Technology Hub at the University of Warwick.

The University of Warwick has a wealth of expertise in the history of science and technology. We cover the full range of scientific disciplines, from physics to anthropology to economics, as well as the technologies associated with them. Our teaching and research in this area is distinctive. It links up the history of scientific theories with wider historical phenomena such as war, religion, globalisation, ideology, social and environmental change, and the rise and fall of states and empires. This work is integrated into various projects in the History Department and is connected to other Warwick research centres in the sciences, humanities and social sciences.

The History of Science and Technology Hub is a portal to the people, teaching, research and events related to the history of science and technology at Warwick.

To find out more please visit our website or follow us on Twitter.

SPECTRUM - Call for Articles

Do you have an interesting research project, event, or series you’d like to describe in 200-500 words? Spectrum – the newly named HRC newsletter – is looking for contributions for the 2019-20 edition. Our aim is to have this glossy, paper publication broadcast as widely as possible the range of our research interests and achievements across the humanities. We welcome short, punchy pieces that capture this spirit and showcase our work.

 

We are also looking to do a feature on newly appointed Warwick humanities staff, so we’ll be looking for the names of people who started their posts in January or are due to do so in August.

 Please send your contributions along by the end of Term 3 to HRC@warwick.ac.uk
