CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS (deadline January 10th 2019):

We are asking for: Sources and explanatory text for a history of science sourcebook that focuses on women in science (broadly construed) from a global perspective, from antiquity to the present day.  

Aims: Our sourcebook is designed to complement the teaching of undergraduate history of science courses, by providing sources that reveal women’s involvement in knowledge production from around the world. Our ambition is to contribute to liberating the curriculum within the history of science, by giving voice to underrepresented actors, and by providing sources that go beyond traditional textual accounts, alongside brief explanatory notes.  

Details: Possible sources might include letters, instruments, weapons, artwork, poetry, textiles, recipes, diary entries, and scrapbooks amongst many others. We particularly welcome new translations and transcriptions. 

We welcome submissions under, but not limited to, the following themes:
•Materials of Science 
•Objects and alternative sources
•Media, Art, Images, Sculpture

•Exploration 
•Maritime, space exploration
•Empire and exoticism
•Map making, travel accounts

•Non-western knowledge making 
•Non-traditional disciplines and methods
•Non-western ideologies and cosmologies 
•Alternative measuring devices or instruments

•Medicine 
•Disease and healing
•The body, embodied experience
•Food, recipes, and care

•Religion 
•Knowledge and belief
•Ritual and medicine 
•Conflicts and cooperation 

•Science & Violence 
•War
•Colonialism and oppressive practices
•Crime 

•Spaces and Communities 
•Domestic and professional spaces, institutions
•Networks, access and agency
•Rebels, dissenters, outsiders 
•Popular science and consuming knowledge

•Indigenous & Folk knowledge 
•Marginalised practices and erasure
•Access & agency 

•Technology 
•Instruments
•Skill and Artisanry
•Embodied and/or tacit knowledges

•Plants and Animals 
•Botany and uses of flora 
•Agriculture
•Natural history and collecting


How to submit: Please send us the source you would like to use (low res. image or text sources not exceeding 5,000 words), details of the copyright owners of the source, and a covering letter of no more than 200 words. Covering letters should give some background to the source and why you believe it is relevant to this work, as well as a little detail of your own background. A CV may be attached if you wish. 

Email submissions to [log in to unmask] by 10th January 2019.

Final contributions to the book will be due in May 2019 and consist of no more than 1000 words of explanatory text aimed at introducing each corresponding source to undergraduate students. 

Please note that all sources must be able to be published in Open Access (Creative Commons) format and that each author will need to acquire copyright permissions to publish their source.

We strongly encourage proposals from early career researchers and people from underrepresented communities. We are also more than happy to consider multiple sources from one applicant
