CfP: "Science and the Moving Image: Histories of Intermediality"

Workshop: "Science and the Moving Image: Histories of Intermediality"  Location:  Online (Zoom) Date:  November 2nd and 3rd  PM (UK time), 2021 CfP deadline :  June 28th, 2021 Since the advent of film in the late nineteenth century, moving images have been integral to making and communicating science. A rich interdisciplinary literature has examined such representations of science in the cinema and on television and investigated how scientists have used moving images to conduct research and communicate knowledge. Responding to growing interest in science and the moving image, this online workshop uses the concept of ‘intermediality’ as a starting point to discuss new approaches and methodologies. Intermediality, coined by media scholars to describe the interplay between different media, magnifies their multiple meanings and heterogenous interrelations. Moving images especially invite intermedial analysis because they are often composed of interrelated visuals, speech,

CfP: Circulation of Images in the Life Sciences

Application Deadline:   June 14, 2021 Event Date: 16-17 and 23 October, 2021 Location: Online through the Consortium of the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine Images are crucial to work in the life sciences. Visual and pictorial representations that reveal biological content have been borrowed, shared, and copied across the various subdisciplines of biological research and beyond. Epistemically and practically, but also for purposes of rhetoric, education, funding, and dissemination, the use of such representations as multidimensional tools has diversified since the 1800s. Focusing on the life sciences, this workshop aims to establish a dialog between papers that investigate the intersection of scientific knowledge-production with its dissemination to scientific and non-scientific audiences. We will ask: How and why are images borrowed and reused? How do functions, purposes, and meanings of an image change when it is adopted, co-opted, or adapted in a new context? To explore

CfP: Superstitio from Ancient to Early Modern Philosophy

  Call for Papers for the end-2021 issue of "Lexicon Philosophicum" ( http://lexicon.cnr.it )  Deadline: November 15, 2021. Invited contributors: Dan Garber, Dana Jalobeanu In 15th-century Italy, Bartholomew Platina offered this two-sided advice to his readers: ‘Do not waste your time with superstitions, do not let hypocrites deceive you’ (“duo … maxime attendenda sunt, unum ne superstitione tempus teras, alterum ne ab hypocritis decipiare” (De Principe, III). Platina quotes, as it is customary, the dual authority of Cicero and Lactantius, whose definitions of ‘superstitio’ (as opposed to true ‘religio’) had framed the idea for centuries. The circulation of Cicero’s De natura deorum and De divinatione and, eventually, of Lucretius, as well as the reception of Plutarch’s and Theophrastus’ treatments of ‘deisidaimonía’, provided a conceptual framework that could be exploited not only inthe new religious conflicts, but also in a vast array of ideal controversies. It covered devi

Wellcome 4-year postdoc & PhD studentship to join Connecting 3 Worlds project, based at University of Exeter

Connecting Three Worlds pioneers a new history of global health that, for the first time, incorporates the socialist world: a fluctuating constellation of Eastern European, Asian, Latin American and African countries connected through political ideology, expert networks, economic development and aid, and military interventions in the Cold War. It identifies the particular health cultures produced by socialism (in all its variety) and explores the impact of socialist internationalism in co-producing global health in the 20th century. We define ‘health’ in its broadest possible terms. Proposals focusing on any or several of the below questions are particularly encouraged: What is the impact of the socialist world on the globalization of public health during the cold war period? How were different versions of socialist public health received, adapted and/or resisted in different local contexts? What was the impact on public health policies of an ever-changing political landscape as social
