2019 Scientiae Conference

The 2019 Scientiae conference will be held at Queen’s University, Belfast from June 12th-15th. Based on proposals already accepted, we anticipate a conference of approximately 175 scholars, most of them at mid- or senior-career. However, to encourage local participation, we are pleased to invite further proposals from researchers on the island of Ireland only, with a deadline of March 8th.

Scientiae is the interdisciplinary conference on intellectual culture, 1400-1800. It is centred on, but not limited to, developments in the early-modern natural sciences. Philosophers, historians, literary scholars and others are invited to share their perspectives on this vital period. Belfast 2019 will be our 8th annual meeting.

Proposals are invited for:

  • Individual (20-minute) papers: Please submit a descriptive title, 250-word abstract, and one-page CV.
  • Complete panels: Same as above for each paper, plus 150-word rationale for the panel. Maximum four panellists, plus chair (and/or respondent).
  • Workshops: One-page CV for each workshop leader, plus 250-word plan for the session: topic, techniques, hands-on resources, etc.
  • Seminars: One-page CV for each seminar leader, plus 250-word rationale for the session: its topic, and its suitability for treatment in seminar format.

All proposals should be sent to pertransibunt@gmail.com.
