3rd IU Graduate Student Conference on the History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine
29th and 30th March, 2019
Indiana University Bloomington
Dept. of History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine
Submission Deadline: January 1st, 2019
The Indiana University Department of History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine and HPS Graduate Students Association are calling for submissions from graduate students working on topics relating to the history and/or philosophy of science for its third graduate student conference in the spring of 2019. Submissions are welcome on a breadth of historical or philosophical topics in the sciences. This conference is intended to be an opportunity for graduate students to share their work, make connections, and receive feedback from peers and faculty in a congenial environment. The anticipated schedule is for 30 minute student presentations, followed by a 10 minute response by a student commentator, and 15-20 minutes for follow-up questions and discussion. There will also be a poster session reception intended to facilitate discussion, particularly suited to works in their early stages of progress, ideas on new methodologies or tools in HPS, or novel ways of extending HPS into the public sphere.
Submissions: Please submit papers or extended outlines suitable for a 30 minute talk, or an abstract or description (~250 words) of a topic for a poster. Dual submissions for talks and posters (on related or unrelated topics) are allowed. Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before January 1st. Acceptances will be sent out in early February.
All graduate students are welcome to attend. If you are planning to attend and would be interested in commenting, please email us with areas of interest by January 1st, and, depending on availability, we will send you an appropriate paper to comment on as soon as acceptances are issued.
