Focus Isis

Browse the "Focus" section of Isis (the journal of the History of Science Society) for surveys of the state of research in specific topic areas:

  • "Why Science Museums Matter"
  • "Relocating Race"
  • "Knowing the Ocean"
  • "Performing Science"
  • "Global Histories of Science"
  • "Neurohistory and History of Science"
  • "Laboratory History"


From the site: "These sections are designed to attract readers in all areas of the field by dealing with themes that cut across chronological boundaries. Originally they were intended as tools for scholars who wished to explore new perspectives in the history of science. But they have proven to be valuable teaching tools as well and we therefore decided to make them more widely accessible."
