Registration is now open for Scientiae 2013: Disciplines of Knowing in the Early Modern World, a conference to be held at the University of Warwick on 18-20 April 2013. For more information, including the conference programme, and to register please go to http://go.warwick.ac.uk/
The premise of Scientiae, an annual conference series, is that the Scientific Revolution can be considered an interdisciplinary process involving Biblical exegesis, art theory, and literary humanism, as well as natural philosophy, alchemy, occult practices, and trade knowledge. As such, Scientiae 2013 will bring together scholars working in the diverse fields associated with early modern knowledge, all taking early-modern science as their common intellectual object. The conference will offer a forum both for the sharing of research and the sparking of new interdisciplinary investigations, and is open to scholars of all levels.
Our keynote speaker will be Stephen Clucas (Reader in Early-Modern Intellectual History at Birkbeck, University of London).
Other prominent speakers include: Constance Blackwell, Isabelle Charmantier, Penelope Gouk, Judy Hayden, Kevin Killeen, Sachiko Kusukawa, Vivian Nutton, Claire Preston, Jennifer Rampling, Anna Marie Roos.
The 2013 conference will be held in the Arts Centre at the University of Warwick, a campus university located in the heart of England on the Warwickshire border near the city of Coventry – only 20 minutes from Birmingham or an hour from London by train.
Accommodation has been pre-booked in on-campus hotels on a bed and breakfast basis, and will be available to members of the conference party at a discounted rate of £73 per night from the 17th to 21st April on a first-come, first-served basis. I encourage early application as accommodation on-campus is strictly limited.
The conference fee is £115, to include coffee breaks and lunches on all three days, as well as a conference banquet on the evening of Friday 19th April. The deadline for registration is the 31st January.
