CfP: Special Issue of ArtefaCToS. Philosophy of Organismal Biology

Philosophy of Organismal Biology: From Ontogeny to Ecology and Evolution  Guest editors: Alejandro Fábregas-Tejeda (Ruhr University Bochum) & Mariano Martín-Villuendas (University of Salamanca-ECyT)  Submission deadline: 29.07.2022  The notion ‘philosophy of organismal biology’ is an apt term to characterize a heterogenous, yet overlapping set of debates inside the landscape of contemporary philosophy of biology that stand in connection with recent advances and controversies of the biological sciences, but that are usually treated separately within scholarly work (e.g., the broader discussions on what constitutes ‘biological individuality’ in contrast to ‘organismality,’ the metaphysics of symbiosis and holobionts, debates revolving around the consequences that obtain by highlighting the role of organisms as agents and contributors in ecology and evolution, controversies on the boundaries between ‘development’ and ‘reproduction,’ and discussions pertaining to levels of organization

Call for abstracts: Hi-Phi International Conference > Lisbon, 23-24 June 2022

Submission deadline: February 28, 2022 The Hi-Phi International Conference aims at fostering the debate between the History of Science and the Philosophy of Science communities by integrating not only independent studies of both disciplines, but also those that stand at the interface of History and Philosophy of Science. The idea for this conference stems from the joint forces of the two research units – the Centre for Philosophy of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (CFCUL) and the Interuniversity Centre for the History of Science and Technology (CIUHCT) – associated to the Department of History and Philosophy of Science of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (Ciências ULisboa). This conference will be held in Lisbon on June 23-24, 2022. The goal of this meeting is to re-link different communities and facilitate the dialogue between senior and junior researchers, but also between historians and philosophers that often work apart. Therefore, the dialogue between Histo

CfP: Participatory Experiments in Urban Policy: Values, Coalitions, Tools, Impacts

 Participatory Experiments in Urban Policy: Values, Coalitions, Tools, Impacts. Call for papers for a special issue of Studia Humanistyczne AGH. Contributions to Humanities. Guest-editors: Siarhei Liubimau, European Humanities University, Laboratory of Critical Urbanism (Vilnius, LT) Jacek Gądecki, AGH University of Science and Technology (Krakow, PL) In many parts of the world, societies are facing systemic destabilization of the relations between knowledge and democracy. At the same time, societies tend to generate more demands for transparency and accountability of policies. These conditions require innovations in the way we generate knowledge about prevalent political strategies, as well as in the procedures of backing political strategies with research-grounded knowledge. Thus, participatory action research is increasingly attracting attention in view of its potential to re-set coalitions and scopes for academic knowledge, as well as to provide new approaches to sharing research r

CfP: Science, Technology and the State in India (deadline 28/2/22)

Date: 23rd March 2022. This will be an online event. This interdisciplinary workshop will focus on the relationship between Science, Technology and the State in India. India’s emergence as a vaccine manufacturing hub during the present pandemic has highlighted the importance of science and technology. India has also seen a remarkable reach and widespread adoption of a variety of technologies from the mobile phone to pharmaceuticals. In this context it is worth assessing the importance of scientific and technological change in modern India from the perspective of Politics and History. Has India's embrace of technology transformed it into a modern state? What roles have science and technology played in Indian statecraft? How have the ordinary lives of Indian people been affected by leaps in technological progress? What are the challenges that new technologies pose to Indian society? The aim of the workshop is to discuss emerging research in the fields of politics and history on the r
