CfP: Making women and other underrepresented groups visible in philosophy and history of science

From Young Researchers For Young Researchers. WORKSHOP from 7 to 8 March 2023, at the Karl-Franzens University Graz

The Centre for the History of Science and the Institute of Philosophy of the Karl-Franzens University of Graz are organizing a workshop from 7 to 8 March 2023, in which female and other underrepresented scientists and philosophers who have been formative for philosophy, science, or the history of science in the course of history and who have received little or no attention in the previous (philosophy and science) historiography will be given space.

The workshop strives for a cross-epochal orientation, through which it becomes possible to shed light on the participation of women and other underrepresented groups in the history of philosophy and science. 

The one-and-a-half-day colloquium will be interdisciplinary, and this interdisciplinarity should make it possible to look at the event's topic beyond the disciplines' boundaries.

Based on the idea "From Young Researchers For Young Researchers," we want to create a stage for young researchers, i.e. philosophers and scientists in their master or dissertation phase. The presentation time will be 30 minutes, with a discussion afterwards.
