HSS 2013 Annual Meeting: Call for Papers
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Isis
21-24 November 2013
The History of Science Society will hold its 2013 Annual Meeting in the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. The meeting will mark the 100th anniversary of the Society's journal Isis, one of the premiere international journals in the history of science.
Submissions on all topics are encouraged. All proposals must be submitted on the HSS Web site (http://www.hssonline.org) or on the annual meeting proposal forms that are available from the HSS Executive Office: email@example.com. Participants do not need to be members of the HSS, but all participants must register for the meeting. Applicants are encouraged to propose sessions that include diverse participants: a mix of men and women, and/or a balance of professional ranks (i.e., mixing senior scholars with junior scholars and graduate students). Strong preference will be given to panels whose presenters have diverse institutional affiliations. Only one proposal per person may be submitted. An individual may only appear once on the HSS program -- workshops and other non-typical proposals are excluded from this restriction. Prior participation at the 2011 (Cleveland) or 2012 (San Diego) meetings will be taken into consideration.
All proposals (sessions, contributed papers, and posters) must be submitted by 1 April 2013 to the History of Science Society’s Executive Office. Poster proposals must describe the visual material that will make up the poster. The HSS will work with organizers who wish to pre-circulate papers.
To encourage and aid the creation of panels with strong thematic coherence that draw upon historians of science across institutions and ranks, the conference organizers have created a wiki at http://hssmeeting.wikia.com. Anyone with a panel or paper idea seeking like-minded presenters should post and consult the postings there to round out a prospective session. Instructions are available on the site. Before sending a proposal to the HSS Office, we ask that everyone read the Committee on Meetings and Programs’ “Guidelines for Evaluating Proposals.” The 2013 program co-chairs are Karen Rader and John Powers (Virginia Commonwealth University). National Science Foundation travel grants, intended to defray the cost of travel to the meeting (hotels and meals are not included), will be available for graduate students, independent scholars, and recent PhDs (degree in the past 5 years). For information on these grants and for inquiries about child care, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
