Ciclo de seminarios on line: En el centenario del Armisticio: salud, medicina y humanitarismo a raíz de la I Guerra Mundial (1914-1918)

Cicle de seminaris: En el centenari de l’Armistici: salut, medicina i humanitarisme arran de la I Guerra Mundial (1914-1918). / "In the centenary of the Armistice: Health, Medicine and Humanitarianism during WWI (1914-1918) and its aftermath".

Coordinadors: Àlvar Martínez-Vidal (Institut López Piñero, Universitat de València) en col·laboració amb Josep Lluís Barona  (Universitat de València) i Jon Arrizabalaga  (CSIC, Barcelona).

Resum del cicle:
La signatura de l’Armistici de Compiègne, entre Alemanya i les forces aliades, el dia 11 de novembre de 1918 va significar la fi de la I Guerra Mundial, una contesa que es va saldar amb vora deu milions de víctimes mortals i un incalculable nombre de ferits i de mutilats. Les potències contendents havien posat en joc tots els seus recursos militars –començant per la carn de canó dels soldats de lleva– per tal d’infligir el màxim dany possible a l’enemic. Com no s’havia conegut mai a tan gran escala, la ciència i la tecnologia hi van contribuir a la carnisseria (Ruiz-Castell, 2015). La guerra total va comportar tot un seguit de novetats (invents, descobriments, avanços tecnològics) armamentístiques, però també defensives, que de vegades l’imaginari col·lectiu sol relacionar tan sols amb la guerra química i les caretes antigàs dels soldats en les trinxeres. En el camp de la medicina, es podrien considerar dues línies principals de transformació: per una banda, el desenvolupament de les tecnologies mèdiques, com ara la vacunació massiva dels soldats per tal de prevenir les malalties infecto-contagioses, el tractament de les lesions produïdes per armes químiques o la transfusió sanguínia (directa, de persona a persona) dels ferits en cas d’hemorràgies greus; i, per una altra banda, la renovació de les pràctiques humanitàries dutes a terme, per la Creu Roja i altres agències internacionals, per tal de pal·liar el patiment de les víctimes, militars i civils, tant en la guerra com en la immediata postguerra. La Societat de Nacions hauria de fer front a tot un seguit de problemes sanitaris provocats per la contesa que exigirà la col·laboració internacional. El cicle de quatre col·loquis pretén commemorar l’Armistici i alhora reflexionar històricament sobre l’equació “medicina i guerra”, tant des del punt de vista humanitari com des de les tecnologies mèdiques.

CfP: Special Edition about The Upsurge of Irrationality (Disputatio | Madrid)

Critical thinking, the general capacity for the critical assessment of arguments and scientific literacy, face several problems that hinder both its public acceptance and its screening by responsible institutions. Although social irrationality is not a novel issue, its sophisticated use by social movements that, flirting with pseudoscience, seek to exploit negligence in decision-making is rising. In this regard, many of these contemporary forms of motivated irrationality show harmful political implications, such as “alternative facts”, climate change denial, radical gender studies, etc., in contexts as crucial as educational, health or environmental public policies.
Disputatio, Philosophical Research Bulletin cordially invites authors interested in reflecting or in presenting a systematic investigation about contemporary forms of collective irrationality that come into well-documented conflict with critical thinking and scientific knowledge. Articles can be interdisciplinary, considering for different standpoints a wide thematic spectrum: pseudo-theory promotion (homeopathy, psychoanalysis, intelligent design), science denialism (of vaccines, flat-earthers, etc.), and post-truth as an attitude of rejection of evidence and critical discussion, flourishing nowadays in postmodern politics. This broad thematic spectrum aims to offer freedom to the authors, nevertheless, monograph will not include merely informative or uncritical articles.
The manuscripts can be submitted in Spanish, English and Portuguese. In case you wish to submit a writing in German or Italian, we offer translation into Spanish and publication in bilingual form. Submissions will be subject to blind peer review and must meet the usual standards of quality for international Publications. If the idea appeals to you and you wish to participate in our special edition, we just need you to provide us with a title, an abstract (max. 200 words), and 3-5 key words. Deadline for the receipt of submissions (full papers): 15/03/2019.
Disputatio. Philosophical Research Bulletin its published by the University of Salamanca (Spain) and follows the standard academic procedure of revision of writings by peers; it is of open access, free of charge for authors and readers, and it mainly publishes original writings in Spanish, English and Portuguese. Disputatio has been given the B category by the CIRC [EC3METRICS – University of Granada] in 2017, the B1 category by the Qualis/CAPES at the period 2013-2016, and the Level 1 INT by the The Nordic List and The Finnish List in 2018. Disputatio (ISSN: 2254-0601) is covered by the following indexing services: The Philosopher’s Index, MLA International Bibliography, ISOC (CCHS-CSIC), International Directory of Philosophy (PCD), Regesta Imperii, ULRICH`S (ProQuest), PhilPapers, DOAJ, LATINDEX (Catálogo), Dialnet, Google Scholar, among others.

CfP: International Society for the Philosophy of Chemistry - 23rd annual meeting

The 23rd annual conference of the International Society for the Philosophy of Chemistry (ISPC) will be held from Monday, 15 July until Wednesday, 17 July 2019 in Torino (Italy), at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Torino.
The conference will be open to the full range of topics related with the philosophy of chemistry and the philosophy of science, addressed from a chemical perspective.
The 2019 edition of the ISPC conference will also celebrate two anniversaries that are especially relevant to the community of chemists. 
The United Nations General Assembly has declared Year 2019 as “The International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements”, as it marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of the first Periodic Table by Dimitri Mendeleev in 1869. The Periodic System is a pivotal achievement of chemistry and a unifying scientific concept, with broad implications in Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics, Biology and other natural sciences. Its anniversary will be celebrated with a special lecture by Prof. Eric Scerri (university of California-Los Angeles, UCLA).
Year 2019 is also the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Italian writer and chemist Primo Levi, who was born in Torino in 1919. Levi, who was a witness of the Shoah and authored the renowned book "The Periodic System", was a student at the Chemistry Department of the University of Torino. This event will be celebrated with a lecture by the Centro Studi Primo Levi, the international studies center dedicated to acquainting people with Levi’s figure and work.

Local organizers

The conference is organised by prof. Elena Ghibaudi and prof. Luigi Cerruti, University of Torino, Italy.

Call for chapter proposals: edited collection on histories of HIV/AIDS in Europe


We invite expressions of interest from scholars of any discipline, working on histories of HIV and AIDS in Europe, to contribute to an edited collection.

Research on HIV and AIDS in historical perspective has intensified in recent years. This exciting work is starting to incorporate groups and experiences that have been under-documented, and to signal the vital importance of local and national contexts. Responses to, and experiences of HIV and AIDS were modulated by features that varied from place to place, within and between countries, and reflected the importance of the social, cultural, and political settings in which HIV and AIDS emerged. 

This collection will explore comparative histories and national or regional specificities, particularly those which capture previously unexamined experiences of those affected by HIV and AIDS. These may include the experiences of young people, women, and families, migrants, or sex workers, for example, or regions and nations whose histories are less well-known. We are also interested in transnational networks, local and national archives, and in the different ways in which HIV and AIDS are remembered around Europe. 

For more information about the project in general, the timetable, or to discuss your ideas, please contact Dr Hannah J Elizabeth (Hannah.kershaw@lshtm.ac.uk) and Dr Janet Weston (janet.weston@lshtm.ac.uk) by 1st December 2018.
