Reminder - Call for papers (with apologies for cross-posting)


Dear Colleagues,

This is a reminder for the 10ICHC, the deadline for the CfP is end of 
this month, April 30th. Have a look at the conference website: 
http://10ichc-2015.web.ua.pt/


10th International Conference on the History of Chemistry (10th ICHC)
University of Aveiro, Portugal, 9th to 12th September 2015
This interdisciplinary conference welcomes participants from a range of 
academic disciplines including history of science and technology, 
science and technology studies (STS), economic and business history, and 
the history of material culture and museum studies. We also warmly 
welcome participants from chemistry and related disciplines with an 
interest in the history of their discipline.

The theme is CHEMICAL BIOGRAPHY IN THE 21ST CENTURY

Key-notes : Prof. Jorge Calado, Prof. Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent and 
Prof. Michael Gordin

Biographies-whether in the form of books or articles-have always been an 
important genre in the history of chemistry. General histories of 
chemistry have often taken a biographical approach, most notably the 
four volume work of J. R. Partington. Many chemists, especially in the 
German-speaking world, have written autobiographies which along with the 
formal obituaries produced by national academies of science have formed 
an important source of information for historians of chemistry. More 
recently the American Chemical Society published the "Profiles, Pathways 
and Dreams" series which extended the autobiographical form up to the 
end of the 20th century. For several decades in the latter half of the 
20th century, professional historians of chemistry avoided the 
biographical approach as being inherently too hagiographical and 
"Whiggish". However following the pioneering work of scholars in the 
history of physics the biography has been taken up anew as a framework 
for analysing thematic  problems and social-cultural questions. This 
conference will critically examine this conceptual "turn" in the 
historiography of chemistry and explore ways in which the biographical 
approach can be fruitfully employed by historians of chemistry.

The conference will embrace all aspects of the history of alchemy and 
chemistry including the history of materials and the history of 
biochemistry. Papers which simply present the biography of a chemist 
will not be accepted, as there must be a line of argument or a 
historical problematic. Papers might address:

1. Autobiographies as a source for historians of chemistry
2. Biography and discipline building
3. Biographies and nationalism
4. The making and unmaking of chemical heroes
5. Myths and misrepresentation
6. Iconography as a mode of self-representation in the visual arts, 
sculpture and photography
7. The historiography of the biographical mode
8. Collective biographies including biographical dictionaries and the 
"biographies" of research groups


Proposals for papers on other topics can be submitted, but preference 
will be given to papers reflecting the conference theme.
Proposals can be made for sessions, standard papers (20 minutes), short 
papers (10 minutes) and posters.
Proposals (abstracts) should be uploaded using Easychair on the website 
http://10ichc-2015.web.ua.pt/ <http://10ichc-2015.web.ua.pt/>  and be a 
minimum of 150 words and a maximum of 300 words.
The session proposals should also contain the abstracts of the proposed 
papers.
The deadline for all proposals is midnight (Universal Time/GMT) on 30 
April 2015.
Further details of the conference, including local arrangements and 
accommodation, will be found on the website.
Please address any queries to the chair of the programme committee, 
Peter Morris, at [log in to unmask]
