The big list of history of science blogs

Following last week’s discussion of blogging within the history of science community, I’ve stumbled on a few more resources. In no particular order, here’s everything I have so far.

Group or Organizational Blogs

Individual Blogs by Historians of Science

A Carnival

A Handful of Online Journals

A Pair of Podcasts

A Brace of Facebook Groups

  • History of Science Society (HSS)
  • International Society for the History Philosophy and Social Studies of Biology (ISHPSSB)

Please take this opportunity to make me aware of anything or anyone I have missed. Neither history of medicine nor history of technology are really my thing, so if anyone else wants to carry the baton for those areas, I’m sure it would be appreciated.

  1. I think a lot of blogs with history of science content are also pretty interdisciplinary (I write mostly about history museums, myself); Cliopatria’s history blogroll has a section on “Digital history, science and technology,” which includes some HoS blogs.
    Also, Penn’s grad program has a blog, the Logan Lounge. And the Chemical Heritage Foundation has a podcast called Distillations.
    And if you wanted to start talking history of medicine blogs, I could give a whole other list!

  2. Thanks for the mentions, John. I should point out that I was only temporarily affiliated with the University of Maryland. I’m really at the American Institute of Physics.

  3. Thanks for the updates, folks. I’ll keep adding as long as people keep providing new links.

  4. John, here’s another HoS site:
    In Retrospect
    “This blog belongs to the students of the research master “Historical and Comparative Studies of the Sciences and the Humanities” at Utrecht University. We post about lectures, readings, and places we visit. Enjoy!

  5. At York University, in Toronto, we run a blog about the history of psychology: “Advances in the History of Psychology” (
    It also covers issues of interest more generally to historians of science, with special attention given to discussions of historiography.
