SGR Modern Science, Technology and Medicine
The group is dedicated to research in the field of the History of Science, in the broad sense. It includes different types of knowledge, techniques and practices that range from natural science, medicine, technology and what is known as ‘social’ and ‘human science”. Inspired by the social twist of historiography, the group explores, questions and historically analyses the relations between academic science and the dissemination of scientific knowledge in society. At present, the work is focusing on three core areas: the urban history of science, science in relation to culture and power (with a particular focus on science during the Franco dictatorship) and gender identities in medical and psychological science.
