CFP: HSTM Network Annual conference in association with Celsius

Call for Papers: Annual conference of the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (HSTM) Network Ireland in association with Celsius

HSTM Network Ireland and Celsius will host this year’s conference at Dublin City University, on November 11th-12th 2016.

Professor Peter Bowler will deliver the keynote address entitled ‘Prophets of Progress?: Predicting the future of science and technology from H. G. Wells to Isaac Asimov’.

The meeting will bring together researchers across disciplines in the sciences, humanities and social sciences. We welcome proposals of papers addressing science, technology and medicine in the context of history, society, culture, ethics or the law. Papers do not necessarily need to be historical nor do they need to have Ireland as their subject. Proposals of thematic sessions and roundtables are also welcome.

Individual papers will be twenty minutes in duration, with an additional ten minutes for questions and answers. To propose a paper please send a 200 word abstract by email to hstmnetworkireland@gmail.com with the subject line ‘conference abstract’. Session proposals should include a short abstract on the session as a whole as well as individual paper abstracts (c. 100 words). The deadline for abstracts is Monday, 17 April, 2016.
