H-Net Network on science, medicine and technology.



H-Sci-Med-Tech is a network for the growing number of scholars, whether independent or with institutional affiliations, who apply humanities methods to study science, medicine or technology across a wide variety of periods and regions of the world. While rooted in history, ours is a very interdisciplinary field, bringing together complementary theories and methodologies from across the humanities and the social sciences.

As in our previous life on listserv, we welcome discussion posts, announcements, CFP's, queries, and other relevant contributions. To send us yours, scroll down and click Create New Discussion Post on the right side of this page. We also welcome images, audio clips or videos. Please contact the editors if you want to find out more.

You can also follow us on Twitter: we are @HSciMedTech.

Requesting Feedback: Student work on the History of Ecology on Wikipedia

Earlier this term, I asked for comments on a number of student projects on Wikipedia relating to the History of Ecology. Thank you to those who sent along comments and suggestions--students were appreciative and excited to see a community of knowlege at work.

I'm writing today to share with you students' works-in-progress, and to ask for your feedback. I'd like to share this feedback with students to help them revise and refine their articles on Wikipedia. See further below for links to the articles on which students are currently working.
