Conference announcement- Scientiae 2013: Disciplines of Knowing in the Early Modern World
University of Warwick (UK), 18th-20th April 2013
The second annual Scientiae conference will take place on the 18-20th of April 2013 at Warwick University in the UK, building on the success of a conference this April (hosted at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver) which brought together over 100 speakers from across the globe to explore the interdisciplinary nature of early modern knowledge.
The premise of this conference is that the Scientific Revolution can be considered an interdisciplinary process involving Biblical exegesis, art theory, and literary humanism, as well as natural philosophy, alchemy, occult practices, and trade knowledge. As such, Scientiae will bring together scholars working in the diverse fields associated with early modern knowledge, all taking early-modern science as their common intellectual object. The conference will offer a forum both for the sharing of research and the sparking of new interdisciplinary investigations, and is open to scholars of all levels.
Detailed information about the conference, along with a call for papers, will be circulated in July. For now, please "save the date": 18-20th April 2013.
For further information or to register your interest please see the conference website which will be regularly updated (http://www.earlymodernstudies.org/events/scientiae), or contact the convenor David Beck (Warwick, History) - D.C.Beck@warwick.ac.uk
