The School of History, Technology, and Society (HTS) graduate students are immersed in a culture of scholarly inquiry and research.
Through courses, seminars, and individual meetings, they interact closely with faculty and colleagues who have earned international reputations for their outstanding scholarship. Numerous special initiatives and programs help HTS sustain and reinvigorate this vibrant, creative atmosphere.
To prepare themselves for professional life, students are encouraged to make use of resources in Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning to improve their writing and communication skills as well as their marketability.
The HTS has a long history of engagement with the Society for the History of Technology (SHOT), the leading professional society in history of technology, and its journal, Technology and Culture (T&C). Former HTS professor Melvin Kranzberg was a founding member of T&C and served as a SHOT president, as did former professor Bruce Sinclair. Current professor Steve Usselman continued the tradition with a two-year stint as president beginning in January 2007. The School’s close ties of SHOT and T&C enrich graduate students’ exposure to leading scholars and research.
An interdisciplinary center based in Ivan Allen College, the Center for Women, Science, and Technology (WST) conducts a variety of research and educational programs on campus. Graduate students in HTS frequently assist in conducting research and organizing programs, such as speakers series, conferences, and workshops.
