Hi Robin and Mieke,

I've been considering the History of Science Ph.D. program myself. It's a one year program if you choose the Master's program and a three year program if you choose the PhD. program.

Robin, you must tell us what your husband thought of the program. Maybe a bit about the professors? I've read some of their bios but a little "inside info" would be appreciated!

The reason that I've been considering the doctorate program there is because of my experience when mentioning science illustration ... I generally get a blank look and the question "what's that?" It bothers me even more so when I get that question from bio professors!!!

Mieke, maybe you and I need to exchange some ideas on this subject too (history of science, that is)! It sounds to me as if we've been thinking about similar subject matter for awhile now.

And, BTW Mieke, I'm sorry I was unable to attend the conference so I didn't get to meet you. But, I've been following the course of these letters.
