Physical Sciences Forum

Welcome to the site of the Physical Sciences Forum of the History of Science Society!  Here you will find information about the Forum and its activities.

For news from the profession, including conference announcements and book reviews, visit our H-Net network H-PhysicalSciences.

We were looking forward to seeing all of you in New Orleans in October 2020 for the co-located HSS/SHOT meeting.  The PSF was sponsoring a panel entitled “Ephemeral Phenomena: Science and Technology in Experimental and Observational Research.”  You can find out more about the panel on the HSS 2020 web site.

We look forward to seeing you in virtually in October and in person in New Orleans in November 2021!

Interested in being involved in the PSF? We are currently looking for new committee members to serve beginning in 2021 and are especially interested in graduate students and early career scholars! The time commitment is small (I promise!) and will look great on your CV. If you think you might be interested, please contact me.
