Welcome to Gewina!

Who are we?

Gewina is the Belgian-Dutch Society for History of Science and Universities. It was founded in 1913 as a Dutch society for history of science and medicine. At the moment, Gewina has almost 400 members, both professional historians and other people with an interest in the history of science, medicine, and universities in the broadest sense. Twice per year we have a symposium on a specific subject. In Fall 2024 we celebrate our 111-year anniversary.
