Johns Hopkins Studies in the History of Technology

Johns Hopkins Studies in the History of Technology is among the most influential and longest-running series at Johns Hopkins University Press. Appointed in 2021, series editors Patrick McCray, Kate McDonald, and Asif Siddiqi are expanding the series to reflect the way the field has broadened in the 21st century. The editors seek projects with a global scope along with those that combine the history of technology with the history of science, medicine, and the environment. The renewed series showcases more diverse topics, authors, and approaches, while continuing to emphasize histories of technologies and the high standards established by the previous editor, Merritt Roe Smith.

Patrick McCray is professor of history at University of California, Santa Barbara where he researches, writes, and teaches about the histories of modern technology and science. His most recent book is Making Art Work: How Cold War Engineers and Artists Forged a New Creative Culture (MIT Press, 2020). Kate McDonald is associate professor of history at University of California, Santa Barbara. A historian of Japan and the history of technology, McDonald is the author of Placing Empire: Travel and Social Imagination in Imperial Japan (University of California Press, 2017). Asif Siddiqi is professor of history at Fordham University where he also is Director of the O’Connell Initiative on the Global History of Capitalism. Among his many publications is the book The Rocket’s Red Glare: Spaceflight and the Soviet Imagination, 1857-1957 (Cambridge University Press, 2010).
