The early sciences represent a diffuse field covering a wide range of both chronologies and contexts. Yet the early sciences also are often taught in a way that falls pray to traditional, linear narratives of western progress. This roundtable will offer a range of approaches and understandings that reexamine and question the grand narratives of the history of the early sciences including, but not limited to, cognitive history, visual culture, race, gender, and global history.
