CfP: 1st Open Forum in History of Physics

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 spring meetings of the German Physical Society (DPG) can only take place with strong restrictions and limitations. Due to this situation, we intend to keep up the 175-year-old tradition of the DPG and create a space for communication. In order to maintain a scientific exchange within the History of Physics community, the History of Physics Division invites you to 1st Open Forum in History of Physics from 16.07. to 18.07.2021 at the Europa-University Flensburg.

With this event, we would like to promote the communication between scholars at all stages of their careers. Instead of issuing a thematic call for papers, we invite papers from all subject areas of the history of physics. Contributions from the history of ideas, social, institutional and instrumental history are welcome in all the variety of methodological approaches that our discipline offers.

Please submit a short summary of your paper of max. 1,000 characters to Christian Forstner by March 1, 2021. All submitted papers will be reviewed and a notification of acceptance will be sent to you by April 1, 2021. The costs for conference participation will be 40€ for DPG members, 50€ for non-members, and 20€ for doctoral students, pensioners and unemployed persons.

Please contact us if you have any questions: Peter Heering and Christian Forstner.
