H-Sci-Med-Tech is a network for scholars who apply humanities and social science 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 theories and methodologies from across the humanities and the social sciences.

We welcome discussion posts, conference announcements and CFP's, conference reports, research and teaching queries, and other relevant contributions. To send us yours, click the orange "Start a Discussion" button on the top of this page. We also welcome images, audio clips or videos. Contributors have to be members of the network, and we will also ask you to fill in your H-Net profile (basic information is enough), so that other network members know who you are. Email the editors if you want to find out more: our new email address is editorial-sci-med-tech@mail.h-net.msu.edu. Please be aware that we don't check this email account daily -- it may take us some time to get back to you. The preferred route for sending us your contributions is the 'Start a Discussion' button.

Books for review should be sent to: H-Net Reviews attn: H-Sci-Med-Tech, 141H Old Horticulture, 506 East Circle Drive, East Lansing, MI 48824-1115, USA

Announcement of New Book Series in Intercultural Transfer Studies with Anthem Press

We invite authors from the humanities and social sciences to submit book proposals and manuscripts for our new book series in Intercultural Transfer Studies. We seek manuscripts that highlight the interconnected nature of the modern world since the fifteenth century. Book proposals and manuscripts should focus on the processes of intercultural contacts and transfers that shaped human societies and cultures. The intercultural transfer paradigm allows us to study phenomena within the space these phenomena created, and which cuts across national spaces.
