The Southwest Colloquium in the History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences is a new annual event sponsored by Arizona State University (Program in Biology and Society) and the University of Texas at Austin (Program in the History and Philosophy of Science). It will be held in 2003 at Tempe, AZ and 2004 at Austin, TX, subsequently alternating between campuses. This year’s theme is "Historical and Philosophical Issues in Conservation Biology."
A Friday Graduate Student Symposium features student presentations on the history and philosophy of the life sciences, preferably relating to the theme; the inaugural Keynote Address, features renowned environmental historian Alfred Crosby (Prof. emeritus, University of Texas at Austin). A Saturday Faculty/Graduate Student Workshop follows, with Dr. Crosby participating.
Abstracts will be accepted from graduate students until December 31, 2002. Submissions are subject to peer review. Limited Funds are available to support graduate student travel for the meeting.
