2nd CFP – Investigating Interdisciplinary Practice, Helsinki, 15-17 June 2015

Workshop: 15-17 June 2015 | Helsinki (Finland) Investigating Interdisciplinary Practice: Methodological Challenges Academy of Finland Center of Excellence in the Philosophy of the Social Sciences (TINT) University of Helsinki http://www.helsinki.fi/tint Call for Papers Interdisciplinarity is one of the most prominent ideas driving science policy today. It is applied widely as a conception of what particularly creative and socially relevant science should consist of, whether natural or social science. For the last 40 years researchers have built up a substantial body of literature constructing various visions of what interdisciplinarity should be like. Until recently, however, there has been little concern for how it is practiced in distinct research settings and fields. This brings to the fore the need to pay particular attention to the methodological and conceptual resources required to investigate and understand interdisciplinary research in action. Interdisciplinar

CfP-“Medical Terminology and Epistemology for a Dictionary of Genetics” Palermo, 4-6 May 2015

Medical Terminology and Epistemology for a Dictionary of Genetics and its Degenerations from Hippocrates to ICD-10”, an International Conference to be held at the Università degli Studi di Palermo (Italy), 4-6 May 2015 Call for papers The FIRB (Futuro in Ricerca) Project 2010 ( www.lessicodellagenetica.it ) – is organizing a three-day International Conference for the study of medical terminology and epistemology. The Conference will focus on genetics and on generation and heredity, and will therefore present in a diachronic perspective the notions of hereditary disease and genetic degeneration, and their etiological, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects. The Conference is aimed at presenting current international research on the formation of a specific and more and more specialised medical terminology for the purpose of defining the onset, development and outcome of hereditary and/or congenital diseases. Accordingly, we encourage submissions concerning different historical

Being Modern: Science and Culture in the early 20th century

Being Modern: Science and Culture in the early 20th century Institute of Historical Research, London 22-24 April 2015 Registration is now invited. See  http://www.qmul.ac.uk/being-modern/ For programme and link to the registration page. Engagement with science was commonly used as an emblem of “Being modern”, across culture in Britain and the western world in the years around the First World War. Today, historical studies of literature, art, design, lifestyle and consumption as well as of the human sciences are exploring intensively, but frequently separately, on that talk of “science”. Historians of science are exploring the interpenetration of discourse in the public sphere and expert communities. This pioneering interdisciplinary conference is therefore planned to bring together people who do not normally meet in the same space. Scholars from a range of disciplines will come together to explore how the complex interpretations of science affected the re-creation of
