In response to inquiries, we are pleased to announce an extended deadline for proposals to our 2019 conference (June 12-15th, Queen’s University, Belfast). Proposals will now be accepted until January 25th, 2019.
Confirmed speakers for Scientiae 2019 include: Raz Chen-Morris, Antonio Clericuzio, Alix Cooper, Peter Hess, Kevin Killeen, W.R. Laird, Nancy McLoughlin, Robert Morrison, Cesare Pastorino, and Vladimir Urbanek.
To elaborate on the information in the Call for Papers, Scientiae breakout sessions can take the following forms:
(1) Traditional panels: three or four papers or talks, of 20 minutes each, followed by discussion. We welcome submissions for individual papers, or complete panels.
(2) Workshops: hands-on sessions focusing on, though not limited to, the use and interpretation of early modern objects and artefacts.
(3) Seminars (formerly “round-tables”): Multilateral discussions of a topic. Formal presentations by seminar leaders should be very brief (perhaps 5 minutes each). The main goal of the session is to provide an opportunity for open dialogue, re: the topic, among all who attend.
