In connection with the upcoming "Author in Dialogue" session on Steven Weinberg's book To Explain the World planned for the American Physical Society meeting in Baltimore next month, H-PhysicalSciences readers may be interested in a recording of a talk Weinberg gave last fall at the University of Texas Institute for Historical Studies. A version of the talk, "Keeping an Eye on the Present," which Weinberg described as "a gentle defense of the whig interpretation of the history of science," appeared in the 17 Dec. 2015 issue of the New York Review of Books.
Greetings H-Net subscribers!
We are pleased to announce the release of the Resources tab, which is now located at the top of all of our Networks. Prior to the release, there was a Media tab that chronologically aggregated all of the contributions uploaded to a particular Network. While the Media tab clearly had some basic archival value, with the development of many diverse projects making use of this material on our Networks, editors asked for a better way to organize that content. The Resources tab is the fruit of those aims.
The History of Physics Group of the Institute of Physics will hold its first Open Meeting in London on Thursday 27 September 2018.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Apparently we are close to our target participation, but not quite there, and the registration window has been extended - so please do consider participating in our summer school, and pass this message on to others who might be interested in doing so, asking them to register by next Friday April 20.
This year we are celebrating twenty-five years of service by scholars, teachers, and students for scholars, teachers, and students to the humanities and social sciences. We own our servers and our members own their contributions. H-Net is a free, independent, nonprofit service creating valuable resources for researchers and educators, stored in a public, permanent archive while safeguarding the privacy of our subscribers. No algorithms, no data selling, no spam, no shouting.
Please note the approaching registration deadline for this summer school!
New Books in Science, Technology and Society (http://newbooksnetwork.com/category/science-technology/scitechsoc/) is currently seeking hosts interested in conducting interviews with authors of new books on STS. Hosting the channel is a good way to bring the work of STS scholars to the attention of large audiences. Interested parties should write Marshall Poe at email@example.com.
