History of science and technologies

History of science aims at critically and historically reconstructing the developments of the sciences, the technologies and the scientific institutions from classical antiquity to present times

This includes the study of the cultural, social, and economic contexts of the sciences, in constant dialogue with other disciplines, from the sciences to the humanities and the social sciences.

This area includes studies on historiography, material culture, visual culture, the history of scientific instruments, museum studies, the history of art, gender studies, and science and technology studies (STS).

History of medicine, the body, and the life sciences in early modern Europe; history of the relationships between practical and theoretical knowledge in early modern Europe; history of alchemy and chemistry from antiquity to modernity; history of the forms of self-representation of the sciences (history, autobiography, portraits, momuments, relics); history of science and scientific institutions in post-unification Italy; archives of science and technology in Italy; women and science and early modern and modern Europe.
