Research in the History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine at the University of Durham
The History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine (HPSM) Network was founded by Durham University's Department of Philosophy in 1999 and it operates a listserv and this webpage.
The purpose of the HPSM listserv is to create a network for researchers based in the north of England who are interested in topics broadly relevant to the history and philosophy of science and medicine (including bioarchaeology and palaeopathology). This is accomplished by posting messages that advertise HPSM events (lecture series, departmental seminars, individual papers, conferences, museum displays, etc.), research (new lectureships, research projects, funding proposals, etc.) and collections (material, archival, cyber, etc.). At present, the list has over one hundred academic subscribers, as well students reading for an MA or PhD in HPSM related subjects. The list includes staff members from the Centre for Life (Newcastle) and the universities of Durham, Newcastle, Sunderland, Teesside, York, Leeds, Manchester, Lancaster, Leicester and Warwick. However, there are several independent scholars too. The listserv is moderated, but it is open to anyone with a genuine interest in HPSM studies. To join, simply send an email to Dr Matthew D Eddy (email@example.com).
