The Pacific Circle was established in 1985 to support and promote research and exchanges in the history of science, medicine, and other practices of knowledge in the Asia-Pacific Region, broadly construed. We take knowledge to encompass a cross-cultural diversity of beliefs about the workings of the universe and the command of a myriad of techniques applied to investigations and manipulations of worldly phenomena.

The Circle publishes its Newsletter every other Monday and the Bulletin every October and April. Those publication includes bibliographies of recent articles, book chapters and books, calls-for-papers for conferences, research notes and queries, and book reviews. Please email the editor at if you would like to receive one or both, and if you would like to share your publications, research questions, etc.
