CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT Midwest Junto for the History of Science April 1-3, 2005 Truman State University, Kirksville, Missouri
The forty-eighth annual meeting of the Midwest Junto for the History of Science will be held April 1-3, 2005, at Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri. The 2005 Junto program committee invites papers submissions on any aspect of the history and philosophy of science, technology, or medicine. Graduate students are especially encouraged to participate, and by Junto tradition, lodging for graduate-student presenters will be partially subsidized.
Kirksville is the home of the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, the first such college in the U.S., and currently part of the A.T. Still University of Health Sciences. Papers on the history of alternative medicine and osteopathy are therefore particularly welcome. A tour of the A.T. Still National Osteopathic Museum is also planned. Proposals for groups of papers or entire sessions based on distinct themes are also welcome.
A short abstract (100-150 words) of proposed papers or sessions should be submitted by March 1, 2005, to David Robinson, Truman State University, Division of Social Science, 100 E. Normal, Kirksville, MO 63501, [email protected]. Abstracts may be submitted electronically by email or as attachment. Paper copies of abstracts are of course also welcome at the address above.
Additional information on registration and accommodations will be added to the Junto website as it becomes available:
