Women in the History of Science

The new edited volume Women in the History of Science brings together primary sources that highlight women’s involvement in scientific knowledge production around the world. Drawing on texts, images and objects, each primary source is accompanied by an explanatory text, questions to prompt discussion, and a bibliography to aid further research. Arranged by time period, covering 1200 BCE to the twenty-first century, and across 12 inclusive and far-reaching themes, this book is a companion to students and lecturers alike in exploring women’s history in the fields of science, technology, mathematics, medicine and culture.

Women in the History of Science (UCL Press, 2023) is edited by Hannah Wills, Sadie Harrison, Erika Jones, Rebecca Martin, and Farrah Lawrence-Mackey. It is available open access: https://www.uclpress.co.uk/products/211143
