investigate a topic in the history of technology between 1500-2000.

You will work on a theme and format of your choice to investigate a topic in the history of technology between 1500-2000.

Topics might be: the technical innovations created or research conducted in a particular geographic region, institutions of science and technology, the individuals or communities working in technology, etc.

To complete this research you will likely need to locate 1) one or more primary historical sources (documents written during the time you are focusing on and by scientists, or science administrators working in the city), 2) at least two secondary historical sources that place the primary sources in their historical context (works written by contemporary historians), and/or 3) a map of the region during the time period (or close to it).

The final essay should be at least 1500 words of narrative, include a formal title, citations, and bibliography.
