Nordic post-graduate workshop in History of Science and
Technology
May 1 to 4, 2003, Bjerringbro, Denmark

Registration deadline: February 3, 2003.
 
Purpose and background
In recent years, studies of the history of science and technology have
been conducted in an increasing number of institutional settings and from
a variety of different perspectives. In the Nordic countries, young
historians of science and technology often find themselves in relative
academic isolation . working on individual projects and located at
decentralized academic milieus of limited size. To help extend the network
and interchange recent ideas and results among Nordic post-graduates we
are pleased to invite our young colleagues to participate in a Nordic
post-graduate workshop in History of Science and Technology to be held in
Bjerringbro, Denmark May 1 to 4, 2003.
The workshop is open to all post-graduate colleagues (doktorander og
doktorand-studerende, ph.d.-studerende, adjunkter, and other
non-permanently employed researchers) working within the field of history
of science and technology. Financial support for accommodation and the
academic/social programme has been secured from a number of generous
sponsors. However, participants must pay their own travel expenses to and
from Århus and a limited conference fee (DKK 300).
The workshop takes the form of a residential workshop hosted at Nørgaards
Højskole in Bjerringbro. The Højskole presents rich academic and
recreational facilities hopefully helping to further the networking of
participants.

Format of the workshop
To promote interactions and networking between the participants, the
workshop has largely been modelled over the annual postgrad workshops of
the British Society for the History of Science (BSHS). 
The workshop includes two invited lectures (Graeme J. N. Gooday,
University of Leeds and Hanna Östholm, Uppsala Universitet) providing a
historiographical and a Nordic perspective for the discussions. Each
participant should prepare brief presentations of their current research
project. Presentations can be given in either one of the Nordic languages
or in English. However, special care should be made to make the language
as intelligible as possible and note should be taken that one of the
invited lecturers only understands English. Participants can also
contribute a poster . in addition to or instead of the oral presentation.
Additionally, the workshop program contains excursions to the Steno Museum
(The Danish Museum for the History of Science and Medicine) in Århus and
to the Danish Museum of Electricity near Bjerringbro.

Tentative programme
On Thursday May 1, the participants converge at the History of Science
Department, University of Aarhus. After a visit to the Steno Museum, the
workshop participants attend a History of Science Seminar given by Graeme
J. N. Gooday.  Following the seminar, we depart for Nørgaards Højskole
where dinner is served and an introductory session is held.
The second day, Friday May 2, is the first day of sessions. Five sessions
are scheduled in which the participants give presentations of their
current work (approximately 20 minutes including discussion).
On Saturday May 3, the programme continues with additional sessions, a
visit to the Danish Museum of Electricity, and a banquet.
On the final day, Sunday May 4, further sessions are planned before a
plenary discussion and evaluation. The workshop formally ends around 2.30
p.m. at which time we depart for Århus arriving an hour later.
