We are seeking a third paper and a chair to complete our panel on 'Concepts of Generation' for the 2010 History of Science Society meeting in Montreal (Nov 4-7). We hope to explore some of the contexts in which the philosophical, scientific, and medical notions of generation figures prominently. One paper will examine ideas of human generation in the field of embryology in nineteenth-century America; the other paper investigates the relationship between generation and corruption inside the medieval and early modern body. We welcome all paper proposals that investigate the concept of generation in the history of science. If you would like to join us, please send a 250 word abstract. Email Shannon Withycombe at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 2 (panel submission deadline is April 11).
