Second Call for Papers - International Conference “Science & Religion”

Second Call for Papers - International Conference “Science & Religion” The National Hellenic Research Foundation - Institute of Historical Research and the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens – Epistemology & Science Education Lab are organizing the International Conference “Science & Religion” in Athens, 3 – 5 September 2015. The Conference is associated with the NARSES Research Project aiming to map the relationship between sciences and religion from the 4th c. AD to the 20th c. in Southeastern Europe and the East Mediterranean. The Project focuses on social formations where Eastern Christianity was the dominant religious tradition with the purpose to fill an important gap in the historiography of science: while a huge literature exists on the relation between science and religion in the context of Western Christianity there is almost a void for the areas of Byzantium, the Ottoman Empire and the Balkan states, marked by Eastern Christianity.

CfP | 2nd Luso-Brazilian Meeting on the History of Tropical Medicine

** ATT: Last chance to send your paper (call ends May 4) ** We are pleased to announce that the 2nd Luso-Brazilian Meeting on the History of Tropical Medicine (2LBMHTM) will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, 14-16 October 2015.  It is organized by the Interuniversity Center for the History of Science and Technology (CIUHCT) and the Institute of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (IHMT) of the New University of Lisbon, the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (FIOCRUZ) and the Centre for Global Health Histories (CGHH), of the University of York. The Luso-Brazilian Meetings on the History of Tropical Medicine have always sought to strike a balance between historiographical reflections, which help develop a broader comparative analysis, and case-studies examining different national, colonial, post-colonial, international and global contexts. We will continue to favor both approaches at the 1st meeting. The bulk of historiographical research has explored the period in the post-World War II.
