2004 Three Societies Meeting: panel proposal on history of eugenics

Conference Panel Proposal: Eugenics and the circulation of scientific knowledge Call for papers deadline: 2003-12-31

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in presenting work as part of a panel on the history of eugenics at the forthcoming fifth British-North American Meeting of the British Society for the History of Science, the Canadian Society for the History and Philosophy of Science, and the History of Science Society, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, 5-7 August 2004. The conference theme is “circulating knowledge”, and it would be interesting to have a series of papers on the role of eugenics in stimulating (or indeed restricting) the transfer of knowledge, methods, metaphors, objects, etc., across social boundaries, whether paradigmatic, disciplinary, national, and so on. The deadline is not far away, so if anyone is interested, please contact me as soon as possible by e-mail.
