History of Physical Sciences Highlights at the 2014 History of Science Society Conference

Two of the panels I have proposed are included in this list that has been curated by Joseph D Martin, list-coordinator for H-Physical Sciences. My session is highlighted.

--------------------------------


As many of you have probably seen, the preliminary program for the upcoming History of Science Society meeting is now available online:

http://www.hssonline.org/Meeting/2013HSSMeeting/2013_Preliminary_Program.pdf

The program is a strong one for the history of the physical sciences. I've included a list of physical-science-themed sessions below (if I've overlooked any, let me know!) Since this is the first HSS meeting where the Physical Sciences Forum will meet as an established unit with a presence on the program, we hope that many of you will find time to attend the distinguished lecture by Peter Galison over the lunch hour on Friday. Please also note that the PSF business meeting early on Friday morning is open to all registrants and that the broader the cross-section of historians of the physical sciences who participate, the better the Forum can serve the needs of the community at future meetings.

Best,
Joe
