2nd Meeting for Postgraduate Students in History of Science Barcelona, May 30th – June 2nd

The next Meeting for Postgraduate Students in History of Science will be held in Barcelona, Spain from Thursday, May 31st, through Saturday, June 2nd 2007. The Meeting is organised by the Centre d’Estudis d’Història de les Ciències (CEHIC) at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, and supported by the Catalan Society for the History of Science and Technology (SCHCT), the Spanish Society for the History of Sciences and Technology (SEHCYT) and the History of Science Department at the institution “Milà i Fontanals” (CSIC).

The conference is a great opportunity for young researchers in History of Science, Technology and Medicine, who want to present their research works, and to discuss historiographical perspectives. Building on the experience of the successful first meeting held at Valencia, Spain, which was attended by almost 30 postgraduate students and resulted in the publication of two books (one in English and one in Spanish), the meeting provides an informal and friendly forum of discussion, in which active participation in the debates is especially encouraged. Organised by students for students, the meeting is open to postgraduate students in History of Science, Technology and Medicine and those who have recently finished their PhD. In order to encourage international participation, the working language will be English.

The time of presentations should be limited to 15 minutes. Papers may introduce original research or methodological and historiographical issues. Participants should submit a short 1-page CV and an abstract of their papers (ca. 350 words), before February 1st, 2007, to the following address: [email protected]

There will be a 30€ conference fee for all participants, which covers three lunches and one dinner. The organization will partially fund the accommodation and travel expenses of the participants. For further information please visit the meeting’s webpage or send an e-mail to: [email protected]
