Joint Atlantic Seminar in the History of Biology: March 24 — 25, 2006 The Johns Hopkins University

This year, the Joint Atlantic Seminar in the History of Biology will convene on the Homewood campus of The Johns Hopkins University. There will be a reception Friday evening, March 24, and the papers will be delivered on Saturday, March 25. All students, postdocs, faculty, and independent scholars with an interest in the history of the life sciences are invited to attend.

Founded in 1965, the Joint Atlantic has a long tradition of providing a collegial, supportive environment for graduate students and postdocs in the history of biology. Not only did this year’s organizers all give their first papers at the Joint Atlantic, but so did their advisors. Now their students are doing so. One reason the meeting inspires such loyalty is that it provides ample time for discussion–and the discussion is always rigorous but constructive.

Registration is free for students. We ask a $10 donation from faculty to subsidize the costs of the meeting and student travel. Visiting students will be put up on the rollaways, sofas, and floors of local students and faculty. Visiting faculty can make arrangements with friends or colleagues or at area hotels.

Directions, maps, links to area hotels, and the preliminary meeting program can be found at:
