The 2nd International Graduate Conference “Epistemic Cultures – Experimental Cultures – Cultures of Scholarship” intends to unite cultural studies-oriented researches on the variety of disciplines. The connecting link shall be the analytical endeavour of studying the activities of modern scientists and scholars as cultural practices. Researches may refer both to the field of natural science and technology and to the field of humanities, arts, and social sciences.
Corresponding to the multifarious field of research, prospective conferees would be graduates from a variety of relevant disciplines: e.g. science studies and philosophy of science, social sciences, European ethnology, semiotics, as well as cultural studies-oriented history of science and humanities. (For more detailed information, see the homepage: http://wk.philo.at).
The aim of these graduate conferences is to support up-and-coming academics by giving them the opportunity to present and discuss their research projects in an international context. The conference is supervised by a team of national and international experts who will also act as keynote speakers. Publication of the contributions is intended.
