Elizabeth Neswald, RASI 2009, would like to see artifact papers at the upcoming CSHPS conference in Victoria. Please consider submitting an abstract or session proposal. In other news, plans are taking shape for RASI 2013 at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon. Stay tuned.
Canadian Society for the History and Philosophy of Science (CSHPS)
is holding its annual conference as part of the Congress of the Humanities and
Social Sciences (CFHSS) at the University of Victoria, June 2-4, 2013.
The program committee invites scholars working on the
history and philosophy of science to submit abstracts for individual papers or
proposals for sessions. Proposals for sessions (3 and 4 paper) are
- Meeting languages. The CSHPS is a bilingual
society. Individual papers may
be given in English or French, but efforts to broaden participation are
appreciated (e.g. a presentation in English could be accompanied by a
PowerPoint in French, and vice versa). Similarly, sessions can be
presented in either English or French, but bilingual sessions are
- Joint sessions: The CSHPS meeting overlaps with the meeting dates of a number of
other member societies of the CFHSS, including the Canadian Historical
Association, Canadian Philosophical Association, Canadian Sociological
Association, Women’s and Gender Studies et Recherches Féministes, Canadian
Society for the History of Medicine and the Environmental Studies
Association of Canada. We welcome proposals for joint sessions with these
and other societies. However, no talk will be accepted for presentation at
more than one society.
- Number of submissions
: Individuals can only submit one abstract for the
CSHPS meeting (i.e. either an abstract for an individual paper or and
abstract part of a session proposal).
- In order to preserve the anonymity of authors, it is important
that contact information and other identifying information be excluded
from the file containing the abstract.
- Individual paper submissions
should consist of a title, a brief abstract (150-250 words), and—in the
accompanying email—the author’s name and contact information.
- Session proposals should consist of a session title, titles and brief abstracts
(150-250 words) for each paper, and—in the accompanying email—the names
and contact information of the presenters and session organizer.
- Proposals should be in MS Word, pdf, or rtf files.
- Presenters: All presenters must be
members of the CSHPS at the time of
the meeting. For more information about CSHPS membership, consult:
- Student Prize: The CSHPS offers the Richard Hadden Award, a book prize for the
best student paper presented at the meeting. To be considered for the
award, students should submit a copy of their paper by e-mail five weeks prior to the congress (i.e. May 1, 2012) Details of
this prize can be found at: http://www.yorku.ca/cshps1/HaddenPrize.htm
