History of Science

The Program in History of Science at Princeton encompasses science, medicine, and technology. From medieval alchemy to evolutionary theory, from early modern optics to cartography, from health policy to the connections between science and the arts, interests touch upon a wide range of time periods and regions of the world. Faculty members are connected with a number of intellectual communities on campus, including East Asian Studies, the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA), Comparative Literature, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Philosophy, and digital humanities.
