Following the success of two recent meetings on the history of science in Ireland, the Royal Irish Academy Committee for the History of Irish Science has decided to hold a one-day general meeting on 14th March 2008.
There is a growing constituency of those interested in the history of science, technology, and medicine in Ireland and this will provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas.
Offers of papers on any topic are welcomed, particularly from post-graduate students.
The meeting will begin at 10.30 am and end at 4.00 pm to facilitate those travelling to Dublin. Presentations will be 20 minutes long. We plan a round-table discussion on two topics: on how to promote and increase public awareness of the history of science in Ireland, and secondly, ‘what is Irish about Irish science?’
Offers of papers should be sent via e-mail by 14 January 2008 to Dr Patrick Wyse Jackson, Department of Geology, Trinity College, Dublin 2 (353-1-8961477; [email protected]) from whom further details are available.
