Contemplating Science, Medicine, and Technology: Past and Present Challenges
Call for papers
Date: 22–24 September 2017
Venue: University of Münster, Germany
The Society for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology (Gesellschaft für Geschichte der Wissenschaften, der Medizin und der Technik, GWMT) invites paper and panel proposals for its first annual conference.
We encourage submissions dealing with all aspects of the relation between historical and systematic reflections and science, medicine, and technology, as well as submissions focusing on the current situation of the historiographies of these fields. Two broader questions stand out: First, historical examples for the use of ‘history’ in social, political, and economical debates about science, medicine, and technology. Second, the relation between the present-day historiographies of science, medicine, and technology and other fields of critical and systematic reflection, as for example gender studies, STS, sociology, philosophy, cultural and media studies.
We also invite proposals for papers and panels about the history of science, medicine, and technology that do not directly pertain to the conference topic.
The full CfP in German can be found at www.hsozkult.de/event/id/termine-32798.
Deadline 1 March 2017; abstracts should in German or English, no longer than one page, and send to:
Prof. Dr. Philipp Osten
