Academy Committee for the History of Irish Science
Call for papers
MEETING: The History of Science, Technology and Medicine in Ireland
Friday 14th March 2008 Trinity College, Dublin
Following the success of two recent meetings on the history of science in Ireland, the Royal Irish Academy Committee for the History of Irish Science has decided to hold a one-day general meeting on 14th March 2008.
There is a growing constituency of those interested in the history of science, technology, and medicine in Ireland and this will provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas.
Offers of papers on any topic are welcomed, particularly from post-graduate students.
The meeting will begin at 10.30 am and end at 4.00 pm to facilitate those travelling to Dublin. Presentations will be 20 minute long. We plan a round-table discussion on two topics: on how to promote and increase public awareness of the history of science in Ireland, and secondly, ‘what is Irish about Irish science?’
Offers of papers should be sent via e-mail by 14th January 2008 to Dr Patrick Wyse Jackson, Department of Geology, Trinity College, Dublin 2 (353-1-8961477; [email protected]) from whom further details are available.
