Call for Papers: Apparatus XY: An Interdisciplinary Conference on Gender and Science
AN INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON GENDER AND SCIENCE
4 April 2008
Program in History of Science
Howard Chiang and Nathan Ha
Faculty Advisor: Angela N. H. Creager
This will be a one-day event that involves presentations by graduate students on their research projects (seminar or research papers, dissertation chapters, etc.). The goal is to foster a sense of community and provide an interdisciplinary forum for sharing and critiquing research on the relationship between science and gender, broadly construed, by peers from a variety of disciplinary and institutional backgrounds. The conference is scheduled to be held on the day (Friday, 4 April 2008) before the 43rd Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Biology, also to be hosted by the Program in History of Science, Princeton University. Participants of either conference are strongly encouraged to attend both events. However, please note that the two events are separate and independent, and questions regarding either should be directed to the appropriate organizers.
Graduate students are encouraged to submit abstract proposals for individual presentations on topics related to the history, anthropology, philosophy, or social studies of science, medicine, and technology dealing with issues of gender and sexuality. Abstracts should be no more than 350 words, and should make clear how the proposed submission addresses the conference theme. Please include your name, contact details, institutional affiliation, the title of your proposed presentation, and details of any specific audio visual requirements for the presentation. If you wish to withdraw your proposal, please inform us as soon as possible. Please submit your proposal electronically (either as a MS Word document or as text in the body of an e-mail) to Howard Chiang (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Nathan Ha (email@example.com) by the deadline of FEBRUARY 29, 2008. Students whose papers are accepted are encouraged to seek financial support from their home institutions to participate in the conference, but there may be a limited amount of funding available for students whose home departments are unable to subsidize their travel.
