Osiris aims to connect the history of science with other areas of historical scholarship. Volumes of the journal are designed to explore how, where, and why science draws upon and contributes to society, culture, and politics. The journal’s editors and board members strongly encourage proposals that engage with and examine broad themes while aiming for diversity across time and space. The journal is also very interested in receiving proposals that assess the state of the history of science as a field, broadly construed, in both established and emerging areas of scholarship. Forthcoming volumes are concerned with science, technology, and food; global medical cultures and laws; medicine in/and translation; the history of algorithms and ‘algorithmic rationality’; and disability and the history of science.

The due date for proposals has been extended to October 15, 2021. For details on how to submit a proposal, please visit the Osiris editors’ site.
