This sub-page includes a selection of resources on science, medicine, technology, and cultural-studies/historical approaches to science designed for humanists interested in the relation between sci-tech and society. The emphasis is on materials that reflect upon, historicize, critique, collect, exhibit, or otherwise mediate (and mediatize) sci-tech rather than on scientific research per se.
