9th ESHS Conference Announcement

August 31-September 3, 2020

Because of the current pandemic it is no longer possible to hold the 9th ESHS Conference live in Bologna. Rather than postponing or cancelling it altogether we have decided to hold it on-line. So, the ESHS 2020 Conference, organized by the University of Bologna with the support of the Italian Society for the History of Science, is going virtual.

It is an irony of history that a Conference dedicated to the Visual, Material and Sensory Cultures of Science will happen in this new format. But we are working hard to turn this new mode of scholarly exchange into an exciting and stimulating one.

Important adjustments will be announced shortly concerning fees, format for EC grants, and deadlines (which have all been postponed), as well as technical guidelines for taking part in the conference. All participants who have sent proposals for symposia and individual papers will also be informed about the new procedures for carrying out sessions and presentations.

We hope that you will still be thrilled to participate in the new ESHS Bologna 2020 Conference and we count on you to turn together a setback into a lively virtual conference.

Keep safe and well,

The ESHS Presidents
Ana Simões, Toni Malet, Theo Arabatzis

The Chairs of the Organizing Committee
Marco Beretta, Elena Canadelli, Sandra Linguerri

The Chairs of the Scientific Committee
Ezio Vaccari, Maria Conforti
