Study Group: Historical Studies of Science

The study group "Historical Studies of Science" considers itself a platform for discussion for master and PhD students, teaching personnel, and all those interested in the history of science. During the meetings we will read and discuss new as well as classical texts to approach the history of science. Thus, we will gain a general idea of both the development and the current status of the subject. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to report on their own term papers and research projects, and to put their theoretical approaches and methodical problems up for discussion.

The study group "Historical Studies of Science" is addressed to students of the master program "History Philosophy and Sociology of Science", PhD students and those already holding a PhD in History, teaching personnel, and everybody interested. The presentation of own projects is favored but not mandatory. However, regular participation is expected.
