Mid-Atlantic Conference (MAC) on the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology
A conference by and for graduate students interested in the history of science
Carnegie Mellon University, July 28-30, 2000
We in the History Department at Carnegie Mellon University invite you to join us at a conference of graduate students interested in the history of science, medicine, and technology. We wish to foster collegial interaction among graduate students in the history of science in this region, and provide a forum for constructive and supportive critique of each other's work.
We will host two types of papers, paper presentations lasting 20 to 25 minutes, and "working sessions" lasting one hour. For working sessions, each individual author will give a 20 to 30 minute presentation. These will be based on future articles or dissertation chapters and need to be pre-circulated. After the main presentation, the remainder of the working session's time will be devoted to discussion.
To encourage both social and scholarly interaction, MAC will open on Friday, July 28 with a welcoming reception for attendees. We have scheduled Saturday, July 29, and the morning of Sunday, July 30, for the paper presentations and working sessions.
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 attendees. We will provide low-cost accommodations and meals for all participants during the conference.
Requirements: Abstracts of no more than 300 words (for a paper presentation) or no more than 500 words (for a working session) may be submitted electronically to the e-mail address listed below, or by regular mail to Gerard Fitzgerald at the address provided below.
Please specify "paper" or "working session."
Deadlines: Abstracts are due by May 14, 2000.
