Society for the Social Studies of Science (4S)

The cancellation of the 4S annual conference means we will not be able to greet our authors, readers, and educators in person.
We have highlighted new, forthcoming, and award-winning titles that we had hoped to share with you in the exhibit hall.
Visit the Duke University Press blog for details about our newest titles.

Editor Courtney Berger sends greetings and offers her highlights on our newest books.
View the gallery of author selfies on the Duke University Press Facebook page.

Our partners at Combined Academic Publishers have created a Virtual Exhibit Page for the joint EEAST / 4S meeting.
