Mid-Atlantic Conference in the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology.
A conference by and for graduate students interested in the history of
science, broadly understood.
University of Pennsylvania
August 6-8, 1999
We in the History and Sociology of Science Department at the
University of Pennsylvania invite you to join us at a conference of
graduate students interested in the history of science, medicine, and
technology. The purpose of this conference is to foster collegial
interaction among the graduate students of the many fine programs in the
history of science (broadly understood) in this region, and to provide a
forum for constructive and supportive critique of each other's work.
To encourage social as well as scholarly interaction, MAC will open on
Friday, August 6 with a welcoming reception for attendees. Saturday,
August 7, and the morning of Sunday, August 8, will be devoted to paper
presentations and "working sessions" of pre-circulated works longer than
the typical conference paper, such as articles-to-be or dissertation
chapters. Paper presentations will be 20-25 minutes. Each "working
session" will be one hour, and will consist of a 20-30 minute
presentation by the author with the remainder of the time devoted to
Following the precedent established by the 1998 MAC organizers at Johns
Hopkins University, we will strive to make this conference as productive
and as inexpensive as possible for all participants. We will make an
effort to house attendees with local graduate students, and some meals
will be provided.
DEADLINES: Abstracts of no more than 300 words (for a paper
presentation) or no more than 500 words (for a working session) may be
ABSTRACTS SHOULD BE POSTMARKED BY MAY 14, or emailed by Monday, May 17.
