History of Science, Medicine, and Technology


While there is not a formal program, the study of how science, medicine, and technology interact with society takes a highly interdisciplinary approach at Washington University including perspectives from history, philosophy, literature, politics, economics, and the arts. The intent of this page is to direct students and scholars to helpful electronic as well as print resources provided by the Library as well as to provide a space for creating greater awareness of this intellectual activity on campus.

Visit Library News for History of Science, Medicine & Technology for more news. Please email Ruth  to be added to my distribution list or to make a suggestion or ask a question.
