Institut Menorquí d’Estudis, Maó (Balearic Islands, Spain). 23-25 May 2019.  Organized by the Catalan Society for the History of Science and Technology.

The School is particularly concerned with exploring how diverse intellectual and social movements have struggled to gain authority and cultural hegemony over women´s bodies by way of defining sexual difference and the gendered body. The ESS is envisaged as a space for junior scholar
