Historiographical reflections on sciences in Europe: Perspectives from Centaurus*

Ana Simões, Maria Paula Diogo

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

Abstract

Contributions of a historiographical bent have been a regular presence in Centaurus. However, from 2007 onwards, when Centaurus became associated with the European Society for the History of Science, a number of papers and thematic special issues that chose to tackle specifically historiographical reflections on sciences in Europe made their appearance. Our long-lasting interest in this problematic, and the urgency of (re)addressing it in a very dynamic disciplinary scenario marked by global studies, and more generally by the necessity of exploring multi-disciplinary connections, provides the springboard for this second virtual issue: It offers a selection of nine papers (published in 2009, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2018, 2019, and 2021), of which five are introductions to special issues or spotlight sections (published in 2009, 2013, 2018, and 2021) covering the 15 years of association between Centaurus and the European Society for the History of Science, from 2007 to 2021.
