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.

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