Many faculty in the Department of History teach and write about the history of science, technology, and medicine, in fields ranging from ancient China to modern Europe, modern Africa, and the United States. This group combines a nationally top-ranked cohort of medical historians with a dynamic new Science, Technology and Society Program (STS). History faculty comprise most of the leadership of campus-wide interdisciplinary units in this field, including the Program in Society and Medicine’s medical history group, the Center for the History of Medicine, and the STS Program. Their work emphasizes the study of the dynamic interrelationship of sciences, technologies, and cultures over time, an approach facilitated by the high degree of integration within History and other core departments.
