Since the end of World War II, historical and contemporary developments in East Asian science, technology, and medicine have received increasing scholarly attention partly due to historian of Japanese science James R. Bartholomew's career-long commitment to the field and his mentorship of a younger generation of scholars.
This interdisciplinary conference proposes to examine the ways in which the sciences in East Asia – whether basic or applied, from technology to medicine—have shaped and been shaped historically, and are being transformed in the contemporary world by political, economic, institutional, social, and cultural forces, both regional and global.
In honor of and reflecting the career of Professor Bartholomew, the organizing committee invites complete panel proposals, as well as proposals for individual papers, round table discussions, or poster presentations on modern Japan and East Asia, especially, but not limited to, themes which engage the interstices between any field of science, technology, or medicine and such topics as social and political policy, national security, gender, environment, justice, aesthetics and values and the like, as well as other topics.
