Robert Jay Malone, executive director of the History of Science Society and a fellow of the University of Notre Dame’s John J. Reilly Center, has been named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in honor of his efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished.
AAAS, founded in 1848 as a nonprofit association, is the world’s largest scientific society and publisher of the prestigious journal Science as well as Science Translational Medicine and Science Signaling.
Malone’s areas of expertise are the history of science, autobiography in science, science in the Colonial and Early Federal Period of the United States and science in the Old South, and was cited for “exceptional service to the History of Science Society and related professional organizations, in support of education, outreach, and developing opportunities for postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and others.”
The History of Science Society relocated from the University of Florida to Notre Dame in 2010. It is the world’s largest society dedicated to understanding science, technology, medicine, and their interactions with society in historical context. Over 3,000 individual and institutional members across the world support the Society’s mission to foster interest in the history of science and its social and cultural relations.
