I have two questions about teaching computing history in computer science (C.S.) departments.
+ Question 1:Which C.S. professors on our planet have one or more funded Ph.D. students working on the history of their field?(I am currently aware of work going on at Middlesex London, Newcastle, and Amsterdam).
+ Question 2:Which academics are teaching the technical/internal/intellectual history of computing to C.S. students?(I am already aware of Giuseppe Primiero, Maarten Bullynck, Giorgio Casadei, and myself.)
Please drop me a line if you have any specific data you would like to share.
I would also like to take the opportunity to announce my latest book, Turing Tales, available from Amazon and other online bookstores. See: https://www.amazon.com/Turing-Tales-Edgar-G-Daylight/dp/9491386069/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1487191902&sr=1-1&keywords=turing+tales
Half of the book is written for historians (covering new material on Turing's legacy in the Netherlands). The other half is written for researchers and educators in computer science (specifically: formal methods & programming languages).
Many thanks,Edgar Daylight.
