Booking is now open for this one-day conference at the Royal Society on Thursday 13 September 2018.
The conference is the third and final event in a series organised by the Leopoldina Academy, the Académie des Sciences and the Royal Society. This London event, in partnership with the British Society for the History of Science, is followed by the BSHS-hosted biennial conference of the European Society for the History of Science, Friday 14-Monday 17 September.
The Royal Society conference focuses on science and society in the later stages of WWI, and the longer-term consequences of conflict into the 1920s. Papers will examine how international scientific relationships, both personal and institutional, reasserted themselves – or perished – after the war. The conference will also look at war-related social change, and how European and other scientific academies acted to reunite, or divide, common activities along national lines
