CfP: 'Renaissance Care' at 2023 San Juan meeting of the Renaissance Society of America

The Lise Meitner Research Group “Decay, Loss, and Conservation in Art History” at the Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max Planck Institute for Art History solicits abstracts for a paper session to be held at the 2023 Renaissance Society of America (RSA) Annual Meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico. RENAISSANCE CARE This session looks at how people and communities in early modernity cared for objects that mattered to them. It aims at moving beyond restoration and treatment, examining instead a broader set of material and immaterial practices aimed at securing and maintaining the object’s well-being. These might include (but are not limited to) acts of physical or symbolic protection and repair; rites of consecration, inauguration, and restitution; as well as what we nowadays describe as preventive conservation, risk management, environment control, and boundary maintenance. Our attention therefore extends to spaces of deposit, storage, and concealment, away from those sites of display (the gallery,

Science History Institute Welcomes 2022–2023 Beckman Center Fellows

Incoming class includes scholars in our new two-year curatorial fellowship program. The Beckman Center for the History of Chemistry at the Science History Institute is pleased to announce our 2022–2023 class of fellows. Hailing from a diverse list of local, national, and international institutions, our incoming fellows will use our collections to study a wide range of topics in the history and social studies of chemistry, chemical engineering, and the life sciences. In addition to our postdoctoral, dissertation, distinguished, and short-term research fellows, this year’s class also includes a cohort of two-year curatorial fellows, the first of its kind at the Institute. Scholars from this new fellowship program will assist with ongoing projects as staff members, expanding and exploring interpretive programs for our library and museum. The Science History Institute is home to the largest private fellowship program in the historical study of science, medicine, and technology in the Uni

FEM ciència? Propostes de la SCHCT per conèixer quin paper juguen les dones a la història de la ciència

FEM ciència? és una iniciativa d’entrevistes online a historiadores de la ciència a nivell internacional que pretén conèixer i reflexionar quotidiana i col·lectivament sobre el paper de les dones a la ciència i la tècnica i a la seva història. La seva motivació naix de la necessitat de reflexionar col·lectivament sobre la construcció d’una història de la dones, especialment en el context científic-tècnic. El resultat de FEM ciència? és de 17 entrevistes en vídeo, amb les  corresponents notes de premsa i publicacions per les xarxes socials. Tot el  material conforma una font historiogràfica molt rica i que es capbussa cap a  temes inexplorats, mostra la necessitat, però també les dificultats d’una història  de la ciència de les dones i transmet una mirada molt transparent de com  s’entrellaça la ciència, la seva història i la societat.  Acabar convidant totes les lectores i lectors a visualitzar les entrevistes de FEM  ciència?, emprar-les a les classes o com a tasques investigadores o

CfP: Poincarean studies, edited by Archives Henri-Poincaré

Special issue of Philosophia Scientiae 27/3 & 28/1 (November 2023 & February 2024) Editors: Archives Henri-Poincaré Submission Deadline: October 1st 2022 Acceptance Notification: : January 1st 2023 Final version due: May 1st 2023 Address for submission: phscientiae-poincare-contact@univ-lorraine.fr The Henri Poincaré Archives were created in 1992 by Gerhard Heinzmann around the project of publishing the scientific, academic and private correspondence of Henri Poincaré. A bibliographic brochure produced by Laurent Rollet then objectified the intensity and diversity of Poincarean studies throughout the 20th century in epistemology, philosophy, history of science and history of mathematics; two new bibliographical compilations published in 2000 and 2005 largely confirmed this observation. On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the Archives Henri-Poincaré proposes to publish a thematic dossier of the journal Philosophia Scientiae on the recent directions taken by Poincarean stud

CfP: “Human-machine communication cultures: Artificial intelligence, media and cultures in a global context”

Proposals are invited for articles to be published in a special issue of the journal Global Media and China entitled “Human machine communication cultures: Artificial intelligence, media and cultures in a global context,” guest-edited by Simone Natale (University of Turin, Italy) and Deqiang Ji (Communication University of China). Traditionally, communication studies investigate the social, cultural and political dimensions of human communication, especially but not exclusively when mediated by technology. Recent advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) pose a new challenge to existing frameworks: technologies such as voice assistants, social media bots, and the application of automatic text generators to news media not only play the role of the channel through which communication is achieved, as in traditional definitions of the term medium (McLuhan, 1964), but also the role of the communicator (Natale, 2021) or moderator (Gillespie, 2018), since they are programmed to produce commun
