This HPS&ST monthly Note is sent to about 7,100 individuals who directly or indirectly have an interest in the connections of history and philosophy of science with theoretical, curricular and pedagogical issues in science teaching, and/or interests in the promotion of more engaging and effective teaching of the history and philosophy of science.  The note is sent on to different HPS lists and to science teaching lists.

The note seeks to serve the diverse international community of HPS&ST scholars and teachers by disseminating information about events and publications that connect to HPS&ST concerns.  It is an information list, not a discussion list.

Please do feel free to forward this email to any local, national or international lists that whose members you think would appreciate knowing of the Note and its web location.  Forwarding the notification email is a very easy and efficient way of multiplying the readership and so increasing awareness of HPS&ST matters.

Contributions to the note (publications, conferences etc.) are welcome and should be sent direct to the editor:  Michael R. Matthews, UNSW, .
