ESHS Conference, Barcelona 2024 Call for Proposals

The theme of the ESHS 2024 conference will be Science, technology, humanity, and the Earth. Science is one of the primary means by which mankind understands, represents and intervenes in the world. Humanity is facing challenges that can threaten its future and the future of the planet where it lives. As historians of science, we are committed to understand, inter alia, how epidemics, wars, poverty, inequalities, and climate change are connected. We invite the community of European historians of science to look at the object of their historical research with a view to the great challenges that humanity has been facing both nowadays and throughout its history. The aim is to distance the conference from a specific methodological approach, and to establish a dialogue between different historiographies, perspectives, and topics. We welcome proposals for symposia and standalone papers on all periods, geographic locations, and areas of specialisation, including but not limited to, the followi

CfP: Revitalizing Science and Values - Deadline November 15

Conference Dates: April 6-7, 2024 Location: Center for Philosophy of Science, Cathedral of Learning, University of Pittsburgh The arena of science and values has grown in size and prominence in recent philosophy of science.

In this spirit we invite papers which expand the boundaries of current work in the field, and/or that argue for views that are outside of the current mainstream. These include, but are limited to: Views bucking the trend towards value-laden science, and/or defending (new) versions of value-freedom. Discussions aiming to bridge work on values in science and general value theory, especially political theory, politica
