Call for Proposals: Labor and the History of Science

Lissa Roberts (Editor-in-Chief of History of Science), Seth Rockman (Editorial Board member of Labor), and Alexandra Hui (Co-Editor of Isis) are organizing the 2022 Gordon Cain Conference at the Science History Institute. From the labor in the laboratory to the science in scientific management, “Let’s Get to Work: Bringing Labor History and History of Science Together,” will provide a forum for productive reflection on and historical analysis of the intimate connections between labor history and the history of science.

The organizers are eager to welcome proposals from early career scholars, BIPOC scholars and those from historically-underrepresented communities, and scholars from the Global South.

The conference will be held in Philadelphia, PA, June 2-4, 2022. Travel support available. The full call for papers can be found here.
