History of communication of science in public in a European context - Call for contributions

Historians of science researching the history of the communication of science in public in a European context may be interested in contributing to a collection of essays which will be offered to UCL Press ( https://www.uclpress.co.uk/ ). Specifically, the editors of the collection, Cristiano Turbil (UCL), Ilaria Ampollini (Trento), Kristian H Nielsen (Aarhus) and Jean-Baptiste Gouyon (UCL), are looking for contributions examining practices of science communication in Europe from the 18 th  to the 20 th  Century.  With this volume, we intend to further contribute to the history of “popular science”, by looking specifically at the history of the communication of science in Europe from the eighteenth century onwards. For us, this means looking at the history of a practice, or, better to say, of practices, to try and understand how different actors have historically approached the task of making scientific knowledge public, for what purposes and for whom, but also how they positi

CfP/CfA: 10th Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology Conference 2020 at UT Dallas

Conference Description This interdisciplinary conference seeks to explore the interplay between human, ethical, social, cultural, and political values, on the one hand, and science, technology, engineering, and medical research and practice, on the other hand. We invite presentations that seek not only to understand how values and science have and do influence one another, but also how they must and should influence one another (as well as types of influence that should be avoided). From this background, presentations that explore the relationship between science and the public and the relationship between science and social justice are also welcome. Finally, this conference ultimately seeks to promoting ethically responsible and socially beneficial scientific research and technological innovation, and critical reflection about the influence of science, technology, and medicine on our values, culture, practices, and worldviews.
