Dear All,

A colleague and I are putting a panel together for 2005 HSS on automata and artificial life (imaginary technology, homunculi, mechanical mirabilia, brazen heads, actual automata) in the medieval and early modern periods in Europe. We are looking for another presenter. If you are interested, please email an abstract of 150 words to: Elly Truitt [email protected]

by March 26, 2005. All fields and disciplines are welcome. Feel free to forward this announcement to anyone who might be interested.

Cheers, Elly Truitt
