CfP: Coloquio internacional: Plague and plagues. Transdisciplinary and diachronic perspectives on the history of the plague

Coloquio internacional 19-21 de mayo 2022 Mallorca (España)

El Departamento de Ciencias Históricas y Teoría de las Artes, el Departamento de Enfermería y Fisioterapia, y el Grupo de Investigación de Historia de la Salud de la Universitat de les Illes Balears, organiza conjuntamente con la red IN-HOPPE -International Network -Historical and osteoarchaeological Past Populations Exploration- y la Asociación de Demografía Histórica (ADEH), un coloquio internacional, transdisciplinario y diacrónico sobre la historia de la peste desde la perspectiva de los avances recientes en historia, arqueología, epidemiología y biología molecular. La peste es una infección, a menudo irreversible, debida a la bacteria Yersinia pestis.

 Esta bacteria afecta a las poblaciones humanas y sus episodios a veces muy violentos han generado uno de los más temidos azotes en la Historia. En una acepción más amplia “peste” también señala toda forma de enfermedad contagiosa y altamente letal. En las fuentes medievales y modernas los términos “peste”, “pestilencia”, “contagio”, equivalen a epidemias, aunque estas no son necesariamente atribuibles a Yersinia pestis. Igualmente, el término inglés “plague” cubre diversas realidades como el cólera o la viruela o, más recientemente, el Sida o el Ébola. Aunque centradas sobre las infecciones debidas a la Yersinia pestis, estas jornadas no puede ignorar otras enfermedades contagiosas cuyo agente patógeno, antes de la era pasteuriana, no se sabía caracterizar de forma rigurosa.

Congreso SEHM. Circular del Comité organizador del Congreso.

 El XVIII Congreso de la Sociedad Española de Historia de la Medicina (SEHM) se celebrará, tras su aplazamiento debido a la pandemia, en Valencia durante los días 15, 16 y 17 de junio de 2022 en el Palau de Cerveró, sede del Instituto Interuniversitario López Piñero-UV, y en el Col·legi Major Rector Peset.

Recordamos que planteamos como objetivo principal reflexionar desde una perspectiva histórica sobre las relaciones entre la medicina y otras disciplinas científicas y la ley.

Aunque partimos de la estructura que quedó establecida con las propuestas que fueron recibidas, ahora está abierta de nuevo la posibilidad de participación de los socios y socias, así como de los historiadores e historiadoras de la medicina, la ciencia, la técnica y disciplinas afines, que en su momento no enviaron su contribución (comunicaciones, mesas temáticas o pósteres).

Novedad bibliográfica: Una historia del Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales

 Autoría: Galera Gómez, Andrés, Martín Albaladejo, Carolina, Peña de Camus Sáez, Soraya

250 años han trascurrido desde que Carlos III fundó el Real Gabinete de Historia Natural, primer nombre con el que nació el que ahora conocemos como Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales (CSIC). Una institución que durante largo tiempo ha marcado el desarrollo de los estudios sobre ciencias naturales en España.

El Gabinete de Historia Natural se abrió en Madrid en 1771 en la calle Alcalá. A finales del siglo XIX se trasladó, de forma urgente y desusada, al Palacio de Bibliotecas y Museos del Paseo de Recoletos, donde sobrevivió hasta principios del siglo XX cuando se trasladó al Palacio de la Industria y de las Artes en el Paseo de la Castellana.

Este libro cuenta, por primera vez, la historia de los profesores y las colecciones que compusieron la historia natural española de los invertebrados no insectos, con especial referencia a los moluscos. Se habla de los edificios del Museo, siempre compartidos, de las obras para adecuarlos y de cómo se investigaba, aportando breves biografías de los protagonistas.

Un apéndice final analiza la bibliografía sobre moluscos y animales inferiores hecha en el Museo desde 1939 hasta 1985.



CfP: 6th International Undergraduate Conference on Science, Technology, Medicine, and Society

The University of Toronto is excited to announce that the call for papers for the 6th International Undergraduate Research Conference on Science and Technology is now open! Please share the below information with any undergraduate students at your university and any others who may be interested in sharing their research:

 

Call for Papers

Sixth International Undergraduate Research Conference on Science, Technology, Medicine, and Society

 

To be held online by the University of Toronto March 24-25, 2022

 

Conference Theme: The Interaction of Science, Technology, & Medicine and Politics

 

Keynote Speaker: Maya J. Goldenberg, Associate Professor, Philosophy, College of Arts, University of Guelph. Author of Vaccine Hesitancy: Public Trust, Expertise, and the War on Science (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2021)

 

It has long been thought that the relation between science and politics is an uneasy one: politics covets power, while science seeks apolitical truth. Scholars from the history, philosophy, and social studies of science have investigated the interactions between science and politics to unearth a complex web where science and politics co-evolve and are co-produced. What  interactions lead science to shape political policies, and political environments to influence science? What lies at the intersection of science and politics?

PhD fellowship Drawing to Learn in Science at NTNU Trondheim

A PhD position is available at the Department of Teacher education at NTNU. This is an educational position that shall provide promising research recruits the opportunity for professional development through studies towards a PhD. The position is connected to the PhD-program in Educational Science at the faculty of Social and Educational Science and the faculty will be your employer. 


The position is connected to the ScienceHumanities research group coordinated from the Natural science section at the Department. The research group applies perspectives from the humanities and the social sciences to the study of natural science (including science in school) as a discipline and cultural practice, past and present. Studies of cultures of text and (re)presentation of science, how the Nature of Science is taught in the classroom, students’ understanding of science, and practical experiments in science teaching are included in this. For more information, see https://www.ntnu.edu/ilu/sciencehumanities.


We are looking for a highly motivated candidate to participate in a research endeavor focusing on Drawing to Learn in Science. 


Drawing to explore, model, represent and communicate scientific understanding and reasoning is inherent to scientific practice. The practice of drawing is intertwined with the history and nature of science in terms of how scientific knowledge is, and has been, produced and justified. When it comes to student learning, drawing has been shown to contribute to observation skill, enhanced recall, to make understanding explicit and to organize knowledge effectively, leading to deep learning. However, there is a lack of studies of how and why teachers include drawing activities in the science classrooms and how students engage in drawing as a science practice. Other relevant questions to ask are what knowledge and skills teachers need in order to make use of Drawing to Learn in Science in their classrooms, and how such knowledge and skills can be developed through pre- and in-service training. We are also interested in drawing as part of past teaching (and research) practices. If you have a research idea, approach or perspective within an area that we have not mentioned, we would still like to hear from you. 

Novedad bibliográfica: Distributivity-like Results in the Medieval Traditions of Euclid's Elements

Author: Leo Corry

This book provides a fresh view on an important and largely overlooked aspect of the Euclidean traditions in the medieval mathematical texts, particularly concerning the interrelations between geometry and arithmetic, and the rise  of algebraic modes of thought. It appeals to anyone interested in the history of mathematics in general and in history of medieval and early modern science.
