CfP: Gender and Intersectionality in Science, Technology, and Medicine: Historical Perspectives

Gender and Intersectionality in Science, Technology, and Medicine:  Historical Perspectives.  University of Granada, Spain, 2–3 June 2023 International Conference of the Commission on Women and Gender of the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine We invite proposals for organized sessions and individual presentations that engage with the theme, “Gender and Intersectionality in Science, Technology, and Medicine: Historical Perspectives.” We encourage proposals that interrogate the multi-agent histories of women, gender and sexuality in science, technology and medicine, with particular attention to the roles played by constructions of race/ethnicity, class and further social categories that impacted personal and professional lives in a range of geographical and temporal contexts. Historiographical traditions in studies of women and gender in science, technology, and medicine have offered analytical frameworks of individual careers,   networks of people, and material objects   and  

CfP: The crisis of the traditional structure of knowledge: teaching and learning mathematical sciences in the 18th century

Even though historians agree that physical and mathematical sciences became academic disciplines from the early 19th century on, it was during the previous century that these sciences moved at the centre of European culture. A veritable “revolution in science teaching”, as L. Brockliss put it (" Science, the Universities, and Other Public Spaces:  Teaching Science in Europe and the Americas", in R. Porter,  The Cambridge History of Science , vol. 4)  took place in the 18th century and changed the content of the curricula in the philosophical faculties, by bringing into university education new subjects such as experimental philosophy, mathematical physics, chemistry, mining, and renegotiating the traditional boundaries between natural philosophy, logic, mathematics and medicine. This process was multifaceted as the two spheres in which teaching occurred, the public spaces of universities and academies and the space of private tutoring and exchanges often superimposed creating

CfP: Cold War Chemistry and Molecular Sciences

Cold War Chemistry and Molecular Sciences.  Contending Bids for European Hegemony, 1945-1985  (session proposed for the 13 th   International Conference on the History of Chemistry by the Commission on the History of Chemistry and Molecular Sciences [CHCMS], in IUHPST/DHST)   Organizers:  Brigitte Van Tiggelen, President, CHCMS; Ernst Homburg, Treasurer, CHCMS   The 13 ICHC will take place in Vilnius, Lithuania, from 23 to 27 May 2023 (see the website  here ).  The CHCMS invites interested scholars in the history of modern chemistry and molecular sciences to submit papers for a session dealing with case studies from the period of the Cold War in Europe, which may cover the period from the late 1940s to the early 1980s.  In this session, we propose to revisit the question of the reshaping of science and technology in postwar Europe in the aftermath of the Second World War and the division of the continent into competing blocs dominated by the USA and the USSR.  Much of the scholarship o

CfP: Rethinking Body in Medical Humanities

Having its coinage in the context of history of science by George Sarton in 1948, Medical Humanities has grown into an exciting area of interdisciplinary inquiry that allows interrogation into a range of concerns around human illness and wellness. The origins of medical humanities, however, lies in the debates on bioethics in the post WWII period. Yet it would perhaps be misleading to anchor this new field of inquiry in a particular monolithic cultural moment. In fact, the emergence of medical humanities is a multi-factorial phenomenon—which includes the clinical divide between medical science and arts/humanities, curriculum reforms in medical education, pharmaceutical and technological advances, etc.—that brings biomedical science, particularly the theoretical and practical issues in the domain of medicine, clinical practices, and medical ethics in a critical dialogue with humanities and social sciences. In doing so, it pertinently deals with questions of bodily experience of disease,

CfP: Science and Belief in Society 4th Annual Conf 12–14 July 2023, University of Exeter (UK) and Online

12–14 July 2023,  University of Exeter, UK, and Online (hybrid conference) Bursaries to support attendance are available The International Research Network for the Study of Science and Belief in Society  has been at the centre of the recent significant growth in social scientific and humanities research focusing on science, religion, and belief in society. Following our successful hybrid conference in 2022, this 4 th  annual conference of the network will continue the hybrid in-person and online format. As this field of research has grown it has engaged in myth-busting popular perceptions and stereotypes about the relationship between science and religion, which treat both science and religious/spiritual populations as monolithic. To date, much of this foundational and vital research has aimed at empirical description. This conference seeks to build on this essential work and address future avenues for research within the social scientific and historical study of science, religion, and

CfA: Big Data and HPS

We invite authors to submit abstracts (up to 500 words) prepared for blind review for a conference entitled “Big Data and the History and Philosophy of Science” which will be held on May 18th-19th, 2023 at the University of Toronto. Please see below for the full conference abstract.   Keynote Speakers   ·   Pieter Francois (University of Oxford)  ·   Rachel Spicer (London School of Economics)  ·   Charles Pence (UC Louvain) Philosophers and historians of science have long been wary about the uses of individual case studies to evaluate philosophical claims about science. The possibilities of cherry-picking or shoehorning in preconceived assumptions about scientific practice into carefully selected examples have led to serious concerns about the prospects of fruitful ways of testing general claims about the process of scientific change. The aim of the conference is to bring together an interdisciplinary array of scholars from philosophy, history, computer science, AI and deep l
