Center for Contemporary History and Policy
The Center for Contemporary History and Policy identifies key issues at the intersections of science, technology, and medicine that can benefit from careful research, analysis, and new perspectives. We develop projects that mobilize history using archives, interviews, case studies, and oral histories in order to bring original perspectives on contemporary science and technology-based societal challenges. Our work and findings are packaged in multiple forms to meet the needs of diverse constituencies, including individuals in the private, public, and non-profit sectors, as well as current and future researchers. We expect to be a crucial partner for the exchange of ideas that are relevant to today’s issues as we fulfill CHF’s outreach mission.
