as a Usenet group and as a gatewayed mailing list.

site write to your  news administrator (write to the address news or usenet) 
and ask that it be added.

The charter is as follows:

  soc.history.science will discuss the history of science in the broad sense:

The Usenet newsgroup soc.history.science has now been gatewayed to a mailing
list, located at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. This group is for the discussion
of topics in the history of science and is intended to bring together scholars
with different specialties, scientists themselves, and interested amateurs (in
the literal sense, not the pejorative sense). Those who do not read newsgroups,
or prefer electronic mail, can now participate in the discussions held in this
group. The mailing list works as follows:

+All messages posted to the newsgroup will be sent to all subscribers to the
mailing list.

you find this list an interesting place.
