CfP: Special Issue on Materiality, Brutality, and Risk in the Twin Climate and Energy Crises

The twin climate and energy crises shaping socioenvironmental and human vs non-human relationships within the Anthropocene pose critical challenges in our current planetary landscape. Predatory neo-colonial extractivism shapes these crises, exacerbating vulnerabilities and inequalities globally. In response, Environmental Sociology invites submissions that critically engage with the notions of materiality, brutality, and risk in decolonial readings of these crises. The climate and energy crises are interlinked on several grounds. The fossil fuel-intensive transformation of the world economy during the Anthropocene, and the range of composite forms of predatory neo-colonial extractivism on which economic growth unquestionably rests, stem out nowadays among some of themes calling for further research. The main objective of the proposed special issue of Environmental Sociology (ES) is to bring into the debate the challenging notions of materiality, brutality, and risk that, if taken as a

CfP: Transversal: International Journal for the Historiography of Science: Leviathan and the Air-Pump

In 1985, Steven Shapin and Simon Schaffer published Leviathan and the Air-Pump, a book that became emblematic and not just for the history of science. It was the last book they wrote with a typewriter and a paper manuscript (Shapin and Schaffer 2011). That work was produced in the world of the typewriter, in an academic culture that expressed the skills and limitations of those who worked with a typewriter and the intellectual and social orders which that technology enabled. It was a production with a different tempo, surrounded by a set of indispensable objects – today wholly unnecessary and almost unknown – to avoid typographical errors and to correct the sloppiness caused by the clumsiness of urgent hands. To sum up, Leviathan burst into academic circles as an act of intervention, seeking to provoke significant changes: “it is a product of its time (...) it is a historical document. It is a moment in changing scholarly traditions, changing cultural and institutional settings, changi

CfP ArtefaCToS: Science Diplomacy and Science Cooperation

The Growing Role of Space Diplomacy on International Cooperation The scientific community works across national boundaries on problems of common interest, and these channels of scientific exchange can contribute to the formation and improvement of cooperative relationships among international actors. The intersection between science, technology, innovation, international affairs, and domestic politics and policies has become a strategic issue in the 21st century due to its ability to find common grounds and win-win situations among actors. Science Diplomacy is an increasingly prevalent phenomenon that is broader, deeper, and more complex than traditional diplomacy. Many actors in the international system employ science diplomacy as a means of reducing tensions, solving problems, exploring cooperative agreements, strengthening relationships, and addressing common issues to improve international development in a multitude of areas, including grand challenges related to education, health,

CfA: Practices of Female Botanists

Keynote speakers: Anne Hodge (Curator of drawings and prints, National Gallery of Ireland) Valérie Chansigaud (Historian of Science, Independent scholar and author) The research centres TIL (Université de Bourgogne) and EMMA (Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3) are organizing a bilingual (French-English) international interdisciplinary conference on the role of women in the development of botany as part of visual, manuscript and print cultures, from the Middle Ages to the contemporary period. We propose to foster discussions at the intersections of the history of natural sciences, print culture, book history, illustration studies, gender studies, plant studies and ecocriticism. Papers may focus on a wide variety of case studies pertaining to any geographical area, from herbals to non-fiction writing, from publishers’ and libraries’ archives to museum collections, or from the garden to the diary and to the printed book. They will address the role of women as amateur or professional bo

CfP: Sickness and Capitalism: New Essays on Public Health, Medicine, and the Environment

This new edited volume provides insights into how the history of capitalism can be analyzed in relation to the production of racial, gendered, and social inequalities in the field of public health and healthcare. While labor and environmental historians and social science researchers have explored how growing industrial productions have contributed to producing toxic residues (Boudia et al, 2021) that affect the health of workers and populations (Bécot & Le Naour, 2023), few books focusing on environmental deterioration and health have united the long-term history of pre-capitalist systems of exploitation and extraction of labor to the industrial society and the post-industrial era. Therefore, this new book will seek to explore these macro-social changes by focusing on diverse case studies addressing the health and social impacts of the plantationocene during the slavery and post-slavery eras (Nading, 2023; Wilson, 2023) as well as the colonial and post-colonial eras (Jobson, 2024)
