Potential attendees at this year’s Fifth British-North American Joint Meeting of the BSHS, CSHPS, and HSS may be interested in this conference, which takes place at York University, Toronto, on 2-3 August — and so is ideally-timed for a combined visit — and sets out to ask how something now conceived of as ‘popular science’ developed in the nineteenth century. The organisers and speakers include a large number of BSHS members. Conference announcement Conference website
