CALL FOR PAPERS: Third “Milano Workshop”

The Physical Sciences in the Third World: A Social History of Science and Development.

Bogotá, Colombia, June 11-13, 2005.

The Third “Milano Workshop” will be devoted to discussion of physical sciences in the Third World, as a contribution to the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s Annus Mirabilis. The workshop will focus on the establishment and development of the physical sciences in the 19th and 20th centuries. The workshop will discuss problems concerned with electromagnetism, thermodynamics, optics, physical chemistry, mathematical physics, astronomy and, more generally, any field in which scientists deployed methods, concepts and/or techniques related to physics and astronomy. One of the aims is to open a common space of reflection and discussion that will facilitate comparative studies of the reception and re-creation of physical theories and practices in peripheral regions and institutions.
