Description
Papers retained by history of science professor Martin Rudwick, related to the development of the Science Studies Program at UC San Diego. The collection includes correspondence, memos, meeting minutes, and brochures.
Background
Founded in 1989, the UC San Diego Science Studies Program is an interdisciplinary program offered through the departments of History, Sociology, Philosophy, and Communication. The program primarily supports graduate students, but includes undergraduate courses and postdoctoral fellowships. Graduate students select one of the departments as the focus of their work, attend a core science studies seminar and colloquia, participate in a scientific internship, and are encouraged to select dissertation topics that offer a cross-disciplinary approach. Founding faculty included Robert Marc Friedman, Martin Rudwick, and Robert S. Westman in History; Paul Churchland, Gerald Doppelt, Philip Kitcher, and Sandra Mitchell in Philosophy; and Chandra Mukerji, Andrew Scull and Steven Shapin in Sociology.
