SLSA was inaugurated at the 17th International Congress of the History of Science, Berkeley, CA, in August 1985 to foster the multi-disciplinary study of the relations among literature and language, the arts, science, medicine and technology.. Represented disciplines include: the history, sociology, anthropology, rhetoric, and philosophy of science, technology and medicine; literary history and criticism; art history and media studies; the cognitive sciences; and all areas of science, technology, engineering, and medicine.
