Chinese Annals of History of Science and Technology

Chinese Annals of History of Science and Technology (CAHST) is the first English-language academic journal on the history of science and technology to be established by Chinese researchers. CAHST encourages studies with different perspectives and approaches, especially interdisciplinary research and cross-cultural and transnational studies on the history of science and knowledge (S&T), including issues of dissemination and transformation that go beyond the Chinese tradition. CAHST was co-founded in 2017 by the Institute for the History of Natural Sciences, CAS and Science Press, under two Editors-in-Chief, Prof. Zhang Baichun (director of IHNS, CAS) and Prof. Jürgen Renn (director at the MPIWG), and the Editorial Board (international historians of S&T and sinologists). The open access portal was launched in 2020.

Knowledge Hegemonies in the Early Modern World

This series is devoted to the collective praxis of early modern knowledge cultures. Particular attention is paid to the development of science, which, in connection with social and economic interests, formed a contested field informed by political, philosophical, and confessional struggles for cultural hegemony. The concept of knowledge hegemony emphasizes collective subjectivity as a driving force and motivates the basic question of the series: Which hegemonic agendas underpinned the early modern transformation of life and knowledge production?
