This seminar replaces ‘New Perspectives in the History of Science,’ which ran at the IHR until recently. It covers the history of the social and natural sciences as well as other ways of knowing and making, and aims to be useful to a wide range of historians and other scholars. It usually runs with two speakers per meeting.
