“Is Business Our Business Too?” A Post from AmericanScience

Over at the AmericanScience team blog Dan Bouk has an engaging post about his experience at the recently concluded BHC annual meeting. His answer to the question, "Is Business Our [historians of science, medicine,  and technology] Our Business Too?" is a resounding yes. In the process, he gives a good overview of the SMT papers presented at the meeting. He modestly does not mention that his own work, on "The Science of Difference: Developing Tools for Discrimination in the American Life Insurance Industry," won the Herman E. Krooss Prize for the best dissertation presented at the meeting.
