Workshop en el Science Museum de Londres: Representing the Medical Bodydy

28 March 2019, Science Museum, London   A one-day workshop at the Science Museum, London, organised by Katy Barrett (Curator of Art Collections) and Sarah Wade (Research Manager)   In 2019, a series of five landmark new medicine galleries will open at the Science Museum in London. A series of contemporary art commissions form a significant part of this project along with images of the human body throughout the history of art. This provides an ideal opportunity to reflect on the unique ways in which the body has been represented in relation to health and medicine through the history of art and visual culture.   This one-day interdisciplinary workshop will bring together artists, scientists and historians of art, science and medicine to explore artistic responses to medicine and representations of the medical body throughout history. Papers are invited from a range of critical frameworks including, feminist, queer, postcolonialist, posthuman and gender studies. Contributions can take a

CfP, Interdisciplinary Workshop on Evolution and Ecology 2019

Interdisciplinary Workshop on Evolution and Ecology 2019: “Bringing Science, History and Philosophy Together” 7 – 8 March 2019, University of Leeds The workshop brings together postgraduate students and early-career researchers interested in evolutionary biology and ecology from a variety of disciplines, including the biological and mathematical sciences as well as history and philosophy. We invite submissions for 20-minute presentations: share with us the theoretical, biological, historical or philosophical aspects of your research in ecology and evolution. This is an interdisciplinary workshop and its fundamental goal is to ignite a critical and multi-faceted discussion. So be prepared to show and discuss your work to an audience of non-specialists! The workshop is designed to dedicate equal time to presentation and discussion: instead of the usual Q&A we will collect the various comments and critiques and explore these at greater length during round-table discussions.

CfP: European Academy for Standardisation - 24th Annual Conference

Governments and companies across Europe and worldwide are confronted with depletion of natural resources due to, among others, their unsustainable use, increased global competitiveness, increasing population, and other challenging environmental and economic issues. Promoting the sustainable growth of dynamic bio-economy sectors will contribute to an innovative, resource efficient and competitive society in transition from a fossil fuel-based society to a bio-based one. Bio-based products represent a great opportunity to reconcile sustainable long-term growth with environmental protection through the prudent use of renewable resources for industrial purposes. However, managing those resources in a sustainable manner implies facing major challenges. In this context, sustainability schemes and standards play a key role in ensuring a clear and evidence-based view of environmental, economic and social impacts. Sustainability assessment schemes are crucial for the development, implementatio
