We are expecting to receive submissions related to Duhemian History of Science, and the impact it caused in the subsequent historiography.

British Society for the History of Science Translations

The British Society for the History of Science is delighted to announce the publication online of a new translation with commentary of Gregor Mendel's landmark 1866 paper "Experiments on Plant Hybrids" -- the first in a new, freely accessible BSHS Translations series, seeking to make historically important or neglected writings from the scientific past more widely available.

CfP: Techniques of the Corporation, University of Toronto

How do corporations know themselves and their world? Over the last 150 years, corporations, like universities and laboratories, have generated an abundance of knowledge-making techniques in the form of psychological tests, efficiency technologies, scenario planning, and logistical systems. As dominant forms of the last century, corporations are assembled with instruments, infrastructures, and interventions that arrange and rearrange the dynamics of capitalism. These techniques of the corporation have filtered into our daily lives, influencing everyday understandings of self, inequality, environment, and society.  Techniques of the Corporation will assemble an interdisciplinary network of established and emerging scholars whose work contributes to the critical study of the techniques, epistemologies, and imaginaries of the 20th-century corporation. This conference aims to foster a timely conversation between Science and Technology Studies (STS) approaches and the recent histories of
