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.

CFP: Panel of History of Meteorology at HSS 2015

I am attempting to assemble a panel on the history of meteorology for the History of Science Society annual meeting (Nov 2015 in San Francisco).

My paper focuses on weather and health in nineteenth century America, reevaluating the ways in which medical geography influenced the settlement and development of the Midwest, especially as it relates to malaria control. I am new to the field and come from a history of medicine approach, but hope to organize a diverse panel on various aspects of the history of meteorology, especially those outside the history of medicine.
