CALL FOR PAPERS: Carcinogens, Mutagens, Reproductive Toxicants:
the Politics of Limit Values and Low Doses
in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries
29-31 March 2010, Strasbourg, France
A presentation of the conference aims and focuses:
We are inviting proposals for an international conference on the various forms
of governing specific substances and products that are now classified as
Carcinogenic, Mutagenic or toxic to Reproduction (CMR for short). This
conference will draw together scholars from different backgrounds – history,
sociology, political science, anthropology, law, etc. – and will be held from
the 29 to the 31 March 2010 in Strasbourg, France.
The conference will be organised in a workshop format with pre-circulated
papers. Each paper will be introduced and discussed by a commentator. We plan
to move quickly to an edited publication.
Proposals for papers should be sent to Soraya Boudia and Nathalie Jas, the
conference organisers, no later than the 26 june 2009. They should contain an
abstract of at least five hundred words and a short curriculum vitae. The list
of accepted proposals will be available from 10 July 2009 and the accepted
participants will be expected to submit a full manuscript version of their
paper by 15 January 2010 at the latest. Funds will be available for accepted
participants to cover food, accommodation, and travel expenses.
