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.
