Propose a New Online Working Group, CHSTM

The Consortium invites proposals for new online working groups focusing on specialized topics in the history of science, technology or medicine. Groups are hosted through the Consortium’s website. Participation will be promoted among the Consortium’s members, fellows and larger community. Individuals or groups can participate from anywhere via video conference.

Each Consortium working group meets monthly to discuss works-in-progress and other literature. Working groups foster a collegial and challenging environment for leading and emerging scholars to work in small groups on specialized topics. For information on our current working groups, please click here.

Proposals should identify at least six scholars committed to attending between four and eight monthly meetings during the 2019-2020 academic year, and should include a one-page abstract on the scope and purpose of the proposed working group as well as brief biographical statements from one to three scholars who will serve as conveners. Proposals should indicate whether the group is part of, or arises from, a larger project, conference session, or other collaboration.

Applications are due no later than August 17, 2019. To submit a proposal, please click here. Please email info@chstm.org with any questions regarding working group proposals.
