Midwest Junto for the History of Science

April 17-19, 2015, Unviersity of Wisconsin - Madison

The 58th annual meeting of the Midwest Junto for the History of Science will be held April 17-19, 2015, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The 2015 Junto is hosted by the UW Department of the History of Science, one of the largest and oldest academic programs of its kind in the United States. Our location is the scenic and historic University of Wisconsin nestled between Lakes Monona and Mendota in Madison, Wisconsin, home to over 40,000 students pursuing studies in 132 undergraduate majors and well over 100 graduate degree programs. Here in the land of beer and cheese, the Midwest Junto will have no trouble holding to its founders’ vision that it should be informal and congenial. We look forward to your participation.

Call for papers

Reflecting the program’s broad interest, we welcome submissions for 15-minute presentations on any aspect of the history and philosophy of science, medicine, and technology. Graduate students are especially encouraged to participate and, by Junto tradition, lodging for graduate student presenters will be partially subsidized.

A short abstract (100-150 words) of proposed papers or sessions should be submitted electronically by February 7, 2015, to Molly Laas at junto@histsci.wisc.edu. Please include your name, institutional affiliation, email, and phone number with your abstract.

Additional information on registration and accommodations will be added to the 2015 Junto website as it becomes available: http://www.histsci.wisc.edu/junto/junto.shtml.
