The 2009 meeting of the International Society for the History, Philosophy, and Social Studies of Biology will take place from Sunday, 12 July, through Thursday, 16 July, at Emmanuel College, Australia, hosted by the University of Sydney.
Bringing together scholars from diverse disciplines, ISHPSSB biennial summer conferences are known for their innovative, transdisciplinary sessions and for fostering informal, cooperative exchanges and ongoing collaborations among a variety of international scholars. The first meeting to be held in the southern hemisphere, the aim is to facilitate the exchange of research ideas and results in biology studies across a range of fields.
The submission of papers and sessions, as well as posters, workshops, and general interest sessions, on any topic within the society’s scope is welcomed. Meeting near the Great Barrier Reef in the year of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species and the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth and the publication of Jean Baptiste Lamarck’s Philosophie Zoologique, possible ideas for proposals include Darwinism past and present; current debates about the genetics of evolutionary change; coral reefs and environmental degradation; biodiversity, systematics, and biogeography; amateur participation in science; and the role of NGOs in shaping science policy.
