Consortium for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine — History and Theory Group

The History and Theory Group of CHSTM will launch its new season on October 13 at 3:30pm EST. We will be discussing the first three chapters (front matter to p. 97) of James C. Scott, The Art of Not Being Governed: An Anarchist History of Upland Southeast Asia (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2009). The group will plan to read the book in its entirety over three meetings.

If you are not already a member, please register at or contact for questions and assistance.
