"Writing the past, claiming the future" is being designed to further conversations begun at previous conferences among historians of science, medicine, and technology. These discussions made explicit how much historians of science, medicine, and technology can learn from each other. It is intended to invite greater interchange among the disciplines while recognizing the uniqueness of each.
Conference themes will include, but not be limited to, personal and external factors that empower or inhibit women's participation in the scientific, medical, and technological disciplines: scientific, medical, and technological ideas that have influenced ideas about gender and gender roles in the disciplines and in the wider society; and the relationship between gender and conceptions of knowledge and the practice of science, medicine, and technology.
Individual papers and panels are solicited on topics that explore the interdisciplinary relationships of women and gender and science, medicine, and technology. Conference organizers strongly encourage the submisison of panels of two or three papers. We are particularly interested in panels that encompass a range of perspectives and stimulate "crosstalk" among scholars of different disciplines.
Proposals must include two copies of a one-page abstract and a one-page curriculum vitae. For proposals sumbitted as a panel, an abstract and vitae are required for each panel member. Proposals are due by January 1, 2000. If you have any questions or would like to be put on the mailing list to receive the conference brochure, please contact Charlotte G. Borst, Chair, Local Arrangements Committee (address below). Conference materials will be available after August 1, 2000.
