An Asiatic Giants’ Shoulders

As already announced for the next edition of Giants’ Shoulders, your favourite history of science, technology and medicine blog carnival, we are leaving our usual haunts of Europe and North America and following such figures of history as Alexander the Great, al Biruni and Vasco da Gama to the shrouded in legend half continent of Hindustan, where are host Fade Singh (@fadesingh) waits to greet us at his Compass Wallah Blog.

Unlike those historical figures named above we come in peace and it would be nice if the Giants’ Shoulders history of science community could write and submit posts related to the histories of science, technology and medicine in Asia for this the 68th edition of our carnival. You have just eleven days to make those submissions, as always, either direct to the host or to me here at RM or to either of us on Twitter (@rmathematicus).

Giants’ Shoulders #67 under early modern medical care.

The #histsci, #histmed and #histtech blog carnival, Giants’ Shoulder #67, is residing at Early Modern Medicine and is very obviously thriving under the medical attention of Dr Jen (@historianjen). Despite the production of suitable blog post being in the doldrums during the holiday period a large crop of history of science reading matter has come together for your delectation. So wander on over and discover why Newton published so little, why people are fascinated by images of women with scientific instruments, how to cure the ‘Kink’, or all about Einstein’s interest in folklore, to name just a few of the fascinating topics to be found there.

Next months history of all things scientific blog carnival, Giants’ Shoulders #68, is going on a long journey following in the wake of Vasco da Gama all the way to the sub continent of India where it will be hosted by Fade Singh (@fadesingh) on his Compass Wallah blog on 16th February 2014. As always submission can be made either directly to the host or to me here at The Renaissance Mathematicus or on both of us on Twitter (@rmathematicus) by 15th February 2014 at the latest.
