WRITING THE PAST, CLAIMING THE FUTURE -
WOMEN AND GENDER IN SCIENCE, MEDICINE, AND TECHNOLOGY
October 12-15, 2000
St. Louis University, St. Louis, MO
"Writing the past, claiming the future" is being designed to further
con-versations begun at previous conferences among historians of science,
medicine, and technology. These discussions made explicit how much
historians of science, medicine, and technology can learn from each other.
It is is intended to invite greater interchange among the disciplines, while
recognizing the uniqueness of each.
Conference themes will include, but not be limited to, personal and external
factors that empower or inhibit women's participation in the scientific,
medical, and technological disciplines; scientific, medical, and
technological ideas that have influenced ideas about gender and gender roles
in the disciplines and in the wider society; and the relationship between
gender and conceptions of knowledge and the practice of science, medicine,
Individual papers and panels are solicited on topics that explore the
interdisciplinary relationships of women and gender and science, medicine,
and technology. Conference organizers strongly encourage the submission of
panels of two or three papers. We are particularly interested in panels that
encompass a range of perspectives and stimulate "crosstalk" among scholars
of different disciplines.
Proposals must include two copies of a one-page abstract and a one-page
curriculum vitae. For proposals submitted as a panel, an abstract and vitae
are required for each panel member. Proposals are due by January 1,2000. If
you have any questions or would like to be put on the mailing list to
receive the conference brochure, please contact Charlotte G. Borst, Chair,
Local Arrangements Committee (address below). Conference materials will be
available after August 1, 2000.
