This seminar engages students with the explosion of scholarship on the history of American science in its political, cultural, and social context. It looks for ways in which historians of U.S. science have contributed innovatively to the writing of history of science in general (e.g., â€_ÄúBig Science,â€_ÄÃ_ science and race), as well as approaches that have been revitalized by developments in related fields (colonial science, environmental history). It aims to provide a solid introduction to the field and highlight prospects for future innovative study.
