CfP: I Legal SciComm Conference: Communicating Legal Research

Science communication is an increasingly important aspect of research. However, science communication usually refers to natural sciences or STEM, and little is known about public communication of the social sciences and humanities (SSH), including communication of legal research. On the other hand, researchers in the law and SSH are often portrayed as commentators rather than scientific experts. To address this gap, the University of Coimbra Institute for Legal Research (UCILeR) is organizing the I Legal SciComm Conference Conference: Communicating Legal Research. This is a conference on the communication of legal research, as part of the Communication of Legal Research (Legal SciComm) project, to be held on November 30, 2023, at the Colégio da Trindade (Faculty of Law, University of Coimbra), Portugal. We would be pleased to count on the experience of students and researchers in this important debate about the role and importance of the social sciences and the communication of legal r

CfP: History of Media Studies

History of Media Studies is a peer-reviewed, scholar-run, diamond OA journal dedicated to scholarship on the history of research, education, and reflective knowledge about media and communication—as expressed through academic institutions; through commercial, governmental, and non-governmental organizations; and through “alter-traditions” of thought and practice often excluded from the academic mainstream. The journal publishes high-quality, original articles, reviews, and commentary on the history of this inter- and extra-disciplinary area as it has intersected with other fields in the social sciences and humanities—and with social practices beyond the academy. We encourage submissions in any one of our formats , in either Spanish or English: https://hms.mediastudies.press/author-guidelines We are committed to a humane, care-based, and developmental review process, with the goal to improve manuscripts through collegial exchange. The journal is published by mediastudies.press , a sc

CfP: Transfuturism Edited Book

Identity and representation in the here and now, as far as cultural productions are concerned, have been supported and/ or undermined by visions of the future in literature, performative arts, or cinema. Authors and performers have offered to audiences their concerns, hopes, and expectations about possible futures via either utopian or dystopian narratives. In 2007, Ann Brooks was talking about a new modality of acknowledging cultural and ethnic identity from a transcultural and transnational viewpoint. In her words, “[t]hese new cultural and ethnic identities carry with them the need for new conceptions of subjectivity and require the opening-up of new subject positions and new spaces and places from which to speak.” (184). It is our belief that the role of futuristic and Science Fiction productions has been key in supporting a transcendence and transformation of subjectivities in the now. Therefore, we are inviting scholars interested in renditions of futuristic worlds in literature

One Postdoctoral Fellowship and up to four visiting fellowships in history and philosophy of physics

The University of Bonn is an international research university offering a broad range of subjects. With a 200-year history, some 35,000 students, more than 6,000 employees and an outstanding reputation in Germany and abroad, the University of Bonn is one of the leading universities in Germany and has been awarded the status of a University of Excellence. The Lichtenberg Group for History and Philosophy of Physics at the Institute of Philosophy is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow (full-time) We invite applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in history and philosophy of physics. The advertised position is part of the ERC Consolidator grant “The Centre of Gravity Project” (PI: Dennis Lehmkuhl), which will investigate the Renaissance of General Relativity between 1955 and 1975, and how this era gave rise to entirely new mathematical methods, concepts --- like that of a black hole --- and ways of thinking about gravity and spacetime structure. The position can be taken up from 1 October 202

CfA Workshop: New Perspectives on Anomalies in the Sciences

Deadline for submissions: August 5, 2023. Notification of acceptance: August 10, 2023. Conference dates: October 5 and 6, 2023. Location:  Instituto de Filosofia e Ciências Sociais - IFCS/UFRJ Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, BRA. Keynote speakers: Otavio Bueno (University of Miami), Décio Krause (UFRJ), Itala Loffredo D'Ottaviano (Unicamp). The workshop welcomes formal and informal contributions on anomalies in scientific disciplines -- with a special focus on novel ways to characterize, reconstruct, and explain anomalies in different areas of scientific research.  Topics include, but are not limited to the following: The ontological status of anomalies (the nature of anomalies in science, the limits of scientific research programs).  The epistemological significance of anomalies (their relation with ignorance, knowledge, and scientific understanding). The role of logic(s) in handling anomalies in science (distinct inferential mechanisms that could underlie th

CfA: Works of Art and Technical Artifacts: Towards a Unified Account? (University of Genova)

The conference aims to identify connections between the philosophy of art and the philosophy of technology, with a particular focus on ontology, function, and creativity. Research questions for papers may include but are not limited to: - Is there an ontological boundary between works of art and technical artifacts? - Do works of art have functions just like technical artifacts? - Can works of art and technical artifacts be traced back to one ontology such as the kind of artificial objects as opposed to natural objects? - Is the ontology of works of art a subset of the ontology of technical artifacts? - Is the aesthetic appreciation of technical artifacts of the same kind as the aesthetic appreciation of works of art? - Can works of art be created by such technical artifacts as computer programs? - What is the role of creativity in art and in technology? Invited Speakers: Paloma Atencia-Linares (UNED, Madrid) Anne W. Eaton (University of Illinois, Chicago) Simon Evnine (University of
