The Max-Planck-Institute for the History of Science Berlin is inviting scholars from a wide variety of disciplines, including historians of science, art, literature, medicine, law, and economics, to submit paper proposals for its forthcoming workshop "Cultural History of Heredity II: Eighteenth to Nineteenth Centuries". This workshop, scheduled for January 10-12 2003, is part of a series of workshops forming the backbone of a long term research project on the cultural history of heredity that aims to uncover the technical, juridical, medical, and scientific practices in which the knowledge of inheritance was historically anchored in different epochs and to understand the genesis of today’s naturalistic concept of heredity. For further information see call for papers at http://www.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/HEREDITY/CALL.html or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
