CfP: "Women in Science: Achievements and Barriers" Conference

Inspired by its 2023 exhibition  Women in Science,  the American Philosophical Society is organizing two international conferences that will explore the history of women in science, the present state of science and society, and the opportunities to create a more inclusive and diverse practice of science. The Society’s first gathering will focus on the themes “achievements and barriers,” while the second will focus on “opportunities.” Both conferences aim to examine these themes from historical, contemporary, and interdisciplinary perspectives.   The program committee is now accepting proposals for the first conference on “Women in Science: Achievements and Barriers.” The conference will be held in-person at the Society in Philadelphia on June 8-9, 2023. The conference will also be livestreamed. The program committee invites paper proposals from scholars in all fields, and especially historians, practitioners, policymakers, educators, and others whose work bears upon this theme. Possibl

Call for thematic dossiers | HoST – Journal of History of Science and Technology | 2024

HoST - Journal of History of Science and Technology is an open access, on-line peer-reviewed international journal devoted to the History of Science and Technology, published in English by a group of Portuguese research institutions and De Gruyter/Sciendo. HoST encourages submissions of original historical research exploring the cultural, social and political dimensions of science, technology, and medicine (STM), both from a local and a global perspective.    Past thematic issues have dealt with topics as diverse as circulation, science communication, natural history, or the relation between science, technology and politics. Future issues might deal with both established and emerging areas of scholarship. The editors of HoST are looking for proposals for two thematic dossiers to be published in 2024 (HoST volume 18, issue 1-June, issue 2-December).    Each thematic dossier should be prepared by the guest editor(s) and include four research papers along with an introduction.   Submissi

CfP: Sound, Language and the Making of Urban Space

University of Copenhagen. August 24th and 25th 2023 Contemporary histories of sound and hearing often open with a lament that this subject matter has too long been ignored in favor of studies of the written word or of vision. But over the last two decades, auditory history has entered the discipline with a vengeance—at the intersection of the history of music, the body, technology, medicine, disability, the environment, and everyday life. Thus wrote the American historian Sophia Rosenfeld a decade ago. Since then, the study of sound history, listening regimes, auditory practices and the cultural history of noise and silence has continued to bloom and bud, often with the context of the city and urban life at its center. From the late Raymond Murray Schafer’s pioneering studies of the urban soundscape via Bruce Smith’s concept of “acoustic communities” and Karin Bijsterveld’s and Peter Payer’s explorations into the conceptualization and abatement of urban noise to Emily Thompson’s study

CfP: SLSAeu 2023. Models, Metaphors and Simulations

Conference of SLSAeu. European Society for Literature, Science and the Arts and ELINAS Research Center for Literature and Natural Science. May, 18 – 21/2023. The SLSAeu Conference 2023 is centered on modes of exchange between discourses and practices of knowledge production, re-presentation and simulation which lead to epistemic transformations in science, literature and arts. Metaphors, models and simulations are epistemic tools for physics, astronomy, climatology, earth system sciences, biology, life sciences, medicine and robotics. Model-based reasoning is employed in social sciences, cognitive sciences, computer sciences, archaeology and architecture. While the usual categories for doing scientific research are experiments, theories and their falsifications, which are mainly based on technical equipment and mathematical formalism, recent approaches investigate how models and simulations are embedded in cultural processes, and ask how they are formed or epistemically transformed as

CfP: Phenomenologies of Care: Patients, Caregivers, and Narratives

Clinical Ethics  Special Issue on  Phenomenologies of Care:  Patients, Caregivers, and Narratives (Deadline for Submissions: 1 May 2023; publication in December 2023) Guest Editors: Jenny Krutzinna and Anna Gotlib   Among the numerous empirical, socio-political, and ethical analyses of clinical caregiving practices, what is often missing are the phenomenological narratives—those that express, are based on, or that explore the ethical, epistemic, or practical implications of, the individual “lived” experiences of caregivers and the cared-for. Yet, without these narratives, it can be difficult (if not impossible) to know whether or to what extent principles, guidelines, protocols, and policies for clinical action and justification capture and respond to actual patient and practitioner experiences. Narratives of the phenomenologies of care are a means of addressing this uncertainty, clarifying what has been epistemically, morally, or practically missed by non-narrative approaches to patie

CfP: Workshop on The Gravitational Constant, from the Local to the Universal, St Andrews, UK, 20-21 April 2023

The workshop is part of  The Gravitational Constant, from the Local to the Universal , an interdisciplinary collaborative project between St Andrews and the  Lichtenberg Group for   History and Philosophy of Physics, University of Bonn  ( https://www.gravconstant.net/  ). The project brings perspectives from transnational history, philosophy, mathematics and physics to bear on the question of how the constant,  G,  was transformed from a controversial innovation in the 1880s to an unquestioned fundamental constant of nature by 1915. The aim of the workshop is to explore the wider context and foster collaborations around emerging research questions.     The 2-day workshop will treat gravitation as a case study in a wider context of interpretational moves at the turn of the 19th to 20th century from the local to the universal that took place through:    measurement     circulation practices     ideas about the role of laws     translation    Each theme will start with an invited speaker
