The Consortium for History of Science, Technology and Medicine is happy to introduce Perspectives, a new library of podcasts, videos, and essays, along with resources for further learning and opportunities to engage in ongoing conversations. Accessible through the Consortium's website, Perspectives provides discussions with leading scholars, interviews with recent authors, and archival highlights from renowned collections. 

Perspectives sheds historical light on contemporary issues. For example, the forum on the COVID-19 pandemic features a series of discussions by an international group of scholars exploring the history of epidemics and public health crises; the intersection of COVID-19 with issues of race, gender, and economic status; and the broader consequences of pandemics for society and culture. 

Coming in mid-September, we will launch a series of posts in which historians and researchers discuss the history of race science, taking listeners through different aspects of how science, race, and racism have been intimately intertwined over the past three centuries.
