IUHPST Essay Prize in History and Philosophy of Science

The International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology
(IUHPST) invites submissions for the 2019 IUHPST Essay Prize in History and
Philosophy of Science. This prize competition, planned to continue on a
biennial basis, seeks to encourage fresh methodological thinking on the history
and philosophy of science as an integrated discipline.
Entries in the form of an essay of 5,000–10,000 words in English are invited,
addressing this year’s prize question: “What is the value of history of
science for philosophy of science?” This question is intended as a
counterpart to the question for the inaugural run of the prize in 2017, which
asked about the value of philosophy of science for history of science. 
Entries for the prize competition should be submitted in pdf format by e-mail
to the Chair of the Joint Commission, Prof. Hasok Chang, Department of History
and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge (hc372@cam.ac.uk). Any
queries should also be directed to him. The deadline for submission is 15
December 2018.

Volunteers needed for HSTM event!

HSTM Network Ireland is looking for volunteers to help run a HSTM event at the Dublin Festival of History 2018

It is envisaged that the event would be a type of roadshow where individuals would bring along household HSTM objects. These would then be photographed, placed on the web, information about them crowdsourced, and then a blog post on each produced.
For this project we will need a venue, a team, and a photography setup. If there is anyone interested in being part of an organising team for such an event, could you please contact Adrian.Kirwan@mu.ie or hstmnetworkireland@gmail.com, thanks.

Irish History Online

Note to authors of HSTM material

If anyone is aware of Irish HSTM publications not on Irish History Online, please send them to the Network at HSTMNetworkIreland@gmail.com  and they will be forwarded to IHO. Thanks.

RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS AT THE WORTH LIBRARY, DUBLIN

The Edward Worth Library, Dublin, is offering two research fellowships (duration one month each), to be held in 2017, to encourage research relevant to its collections.

The collection is particularly strong in three areas: early modern medicine, early modern history of science and, given that Worth was a connoisseur book collector interested in fine bindings and rare printing, the History of the Book. Research does not, however, have to be restricted to these three key areas.

The closing date is Monday 3 April 2017
