The Call for Papers for 2020-21 Working Groups

The Consortium’s working groups bring together scholars for monthly meetings in specialized fields related to the history of science, technology and medicine to share their works in progress. All interested scholars are welcome, either in person at the Consortium's offices in Philadelphia, or online via web conferencing software. We are currently soliciting paper proposals for the 2020-2021 academic year in the following working groups:

Anyone interested in sharing their works in progress for discussion should submit, as a single PDF, a proposal including:

  • a description of the paper
  • what you hope to gain from discussion with the group
  • relevant biographical information

Proposals longer than 1000 words will not be considered. Accepted papers will be due one month before the scheduled meeting date.
