OHST promotes research and intellectual exchange in the history of science and technology. In cooperation with other research units and teaching departments at Berkeley, especially the Department of History, which offers an MA/PhD in the history of science, the Office provides research facilities and administrative assistance to scholars and students, as well as organizing international exchanges, conferences, and a public colloquium series. We publish Historical Studies in the Natural Sciences, a leading journal in the field, and other publications, including the Berkeley Papers monograph series. We also welcome postdoctoral fellows and other visiting scholars from all over the world.
