Centaurus: Call for Proposals

Annual Call for Proposals: Special Issues of Centaurus

Centaurus, the official Journal of the European Society for the History of Science, regularly publishes issues dedicated to a special theme.
Recently published special issues include:

•       Tercentenary of D’Alembert’s Birth (1717-1783): A Review of the Latest Research.

•       The Promises of Science: Historical Perspectives.

•       How Do Writings in the Early Astral Sciences Reveal Mathematical Practices?

•       Scoops, Scams and Scuffles: The Construction of Prehistoric Knowledge in Newspapers.


The ESHS and the Editorial Board of Centaurus are now soliciting proposals for special issues for 2020 and 2021.


Proposals should include the following:


1.      A description of the topic and its significance (approximately 500 words).

2.      A list of 6 to 10 contributors and a title and paragraph describing each contributor’s individual essay. Note that we would normally expect a diverse set of authors.

3.      A brief CV of the guest editor(s).

4.      A schedule of production (date of first submission; time for peer review; time for revisions; final version ready).


Centaurus is growing and special issues can now be larger than before. More than 150 pages (75,000 words) are available for a special issue. All topics that fall within the scope of the journal can be chosen. See the website of the journal

We are especially looking forward to receiving proposals for interdisciplinary special issues.


The committee selecting the special issues will be composed of the editorial board and ESHS representatives. Criteria include the quality, innovative character and interest of the proposal, the expertise of the guest editor(s), the expertise and diversity of the authors, and the coherence and feasibility of the project.

Crowdfunding Project Cityscapes & Earth Debates

As part of a Cartography and Mapping Grants Challenge, HSTM Network Ireland member Tanya O’Sullivan has launched a crowdfunding project to raise 500 dollars in 30 days to help start a research project on:

Cityscapes and Earth Debates: Fashioning the Geosphere in Nineteenth-Century Ireland.

This project maps the course of scientific ideas as they navigate the cultural landscape of nineteenth-century Ireland. It is primarily concerned with the relationship between scientific knowledge and urban space and takes as its theme the mid nineteenth-century discourse on earth sciences in Ireland. It assesses the crucial significance of city-lives, space and place on contemporary discussions around the age, structure and evolution of the earth.

We hope that this exposure as part of the Cartography and Mapping Grant Challenge on experiment.com will help to promote the history of science  within science and bring Irish HSTM research to a wider audience. There is a facility to provide ‘lab notes’ or updates on the project as the work progresses, and backers can discuss and become involved in the research as well as being acknowledged in the final article.

Please share this link to the project page with HSTM people or anyone who might be interested, and feel free to donate, even $5 will help!
