The Program in the History of Science, Technology and Medicine
The Program in the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine integrates faculty and students from several departments and programs at the University of Minnesota. Each faculty member has a joint appointment in a department in the College of Science and Engineering, the Medical School, or the College of Biological Sciences, and many have graduate appointments in other departments as well, ensuring close association with other related fields. We have strong ties with the Minnesota Center for Philosophy of Science, the Department of History, and the science and engineering departments where the faculty hold tenure. These university and departmental connections are a major source of intellectual stimulation and support for both faculty and graduate students. We also sponsor a weekly colloquium and periodic symposia, bringing scholars from all over the world to the university. The program encourages a diversity of methodological approaches.
The Program has a research center, the Charles Babbage Institute for Computing, Information and Culture.
