About the History of Science Reader
The disciplines of the history of science, medicine, and technology are rethinking themselves in global terms. Part of this process involves questioning the purpose, themes and reception of translations in the globalizing discipline of the history of science. In response, the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG), together with the History of Science Society (HSS) initiated a collective reflection on some of the influential literature in this field published in English since 1990.
This History of Science Reader Project encompasses three publications, two drawing on articles published initially in English, and one featuring articles originally published in Chinese.
