2nd CFP: Integrated History and Philosophy of Science (&HPS2)

&HPS2 - Integrated History and Philosophy of Science
University of Notre Dame
March 12-15, 2009


We invite the submission of individual paper abstracts for &HPS2, the second in what is to be a series of international conferences under the general heading of "Integrated History and Philosophy of Science."

The intended scope and character of the scholarship we solicit for &HPS2 is well described by the "manifesto" for the whole series:

&HPS1 was hosted in October 2007 by the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Philosophy of Science. Please visit the web site for that meeting for a sampling of the work presented there:

The deadline for submission of abstracts and symposium proposals for &HPS2 will be December 1. Decisions will be announced by January 12, 2009. In order to enable the program committee to make more informed decisions, we request somewhat longer and more detailed abstracts, on the order of 1000 words. Also, if you are aware of other submitters whose work might well be grouped with yours in a symposium session, please alert us to that fact.

Please direct your submissions to:

andhps@nd.edu

Please note that we especially encourage submissions from graduate students and younger scholars. Limited financial support for graduate students and younger scholars presenting work at &HPS2 might be available.
