Recording of a Steven Weinberg talk on the whig interpretation of the history of science

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.

Announcing the new Resources tab

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.
