Les femmes dans la science

Revealing lives : women in science 1830-2000

Call for papers

Thurs 22 May–Fri 23 May 2014: The Royal Society, London


This international conference aims to locate and examine women’s participation in science, to identify areas for further research and to reflect on how historical interpretations can inform the role of women in science today. The programme will include contemporary science-led panels to provide context and help build connections between the past and the present.

How are we to recover, interpret and understand women’s experiences in science? Popular history delivers stories of a few ‘heroines’ of science, but perhaps these narratives do more to conceal than reveal? Where were the workaday women scientists – now largely invisible – whose contributions have helped shape science today?

‘Science’ and ‘participation’ will be defined to encourage maximum inclusivity and we welcome contributions from a broad, multidisciplinary perspective. Themes may include (but are not limited to):
Women and learned societies
Women and spaces of scientific production
Women and scientific education and learning
Representations of women scientists: media, fiction, film, art
Scientific collaboration
Women within familial and social networks of science
Gendered roles in science
Science today: issues and challenges
The ‘leaky pipeline’: women leaving science

Selected papers from the conference will appear in a special issue of the Royal Society’s history journal Notes and Records (final papers to be submitted by end of September 2014).

Proposals for panels and for individual papers are encouraged. Please send abstracts for papers (max 20 minutes) of no more than 200 words, and for panels of no more than 400 words, along with brief biographical details, to Dr Claire Jones: and Dr Sue by the deadline of Friday 1 November 2013.

Regular updates concerning programme and registration will be posted here.
