Students, all through from undergraduate right through to post-doctoral fellows are really engaged in broader questions within these fields, partly tearing down some of the boundaries… History of Science, History of Medicine, History of Technology, STS…and starting to borrow from a variety of fields and ask really interesting sophisticated questions.

Everyone gravitates towards elements of what the network in Canada does because they are fundamental questions at the heart of it. Basically, what STS or HPS look at fundamentally is ‘what is nature?’ and ‘how do we know it?’ And that’s the starting point. And then you have all these different types of questions that spawn from that and that are really really interesting.
