Paper and panel proposals are invited once again for *Scientiae: Disciplines of Knowing in the Early-Modern World*, a conference to be held in Vancouver, B.C., April 26th-28th, 2012. As described in the CFP (below), the conference is dedicated to all new interdisciplinary research on early-modern/Renaissance science. We anticipate three days of rich intellectual discussion – punctuated by coffee, snacks, and drinks – in the cosmopolitan and multicultural setting of downtown Vancouver.
The keynote speakers for *Scientiae* will be Mario Biagioli (UC Davis) and Peter Harrison (Oxford). Dr. Biagioli is the author of *Galileo’s Instruments of Credit* (Chicago, 2006) and *Galileo, Courtier* (Chicago, 1993), among many other publications. Dr. Harrison’s publications include *The Fall of Man and the Foundations of Science* (Cambridge, 2007), *The Bible, Protestantism and the Rise of Natural Science* (Cambridge, 1998), and, as editor, *The Cambridge Companion to Science and Religion* (Cambridge, 2010).
Palgrave Macmillan has expressed an interest in bringing out a volume of essays based on papers given at *Scientiae*, and we are currently working out further publication arrangements.
All sessions of *Scientiae* will be held in the Segal and Fletcher meeting spaces of the Harbour Centre campus, Simon Fraser University:
All conference spaces are tech-enabled, modern, bright, and comfortable.
A favorable conference rate will be available at the Delta Suites Hotel, directly across the street from Harbour Centre: seehttp://www.deltahotels.com/en/hotels/british-columbia/delta-vancouver-suites/ .
Many other accommodation options are available in the immediate area. The conference location, waterfront in the heart of downtown Vancouver, is excellent for walking, dining, shopping, etc. Late April, with luck, brings warm spring weather to the region; even while skiing continues on the local mountains, including Whistler.
The deadline for paper and/or panel proposals to *Scientiae* is SEPTEMBER 30TH, 2011. Proposals should be sent as Word or .pdf attachments to [email protected] . For more information, and ongoing updates, see the conference website:
