HSS 2020 Authors' Pitch

Welcome to the HSS 2020 Authors’ Book Pitch!

At a time when in-person interaction and exchange is limited, the Authors’ Book Pitch provides a platform to share new and exciting scholarship. We have invited authors of monographs and editors of collective volumes published in the history of science, technology and medicine in 2019 or 2020 to share their work with the HSS and SHOT community in 3-minute videos. Transcripts are also available. Feel free to browse through our videos and learn about the newest releases, directly from the source!

(Note: the videos will be available through the first weekend after our meeting and will be deleted when we close our conference platform.)
