Workshop: Making women visible in philosophy and history of science, 07.-08.03.2023, Graz and virtual space

Univ. of Graz: Centre for the History of Science in coop. with the Institute of Philosophy; Lisa Brunner, Tanja Eigner-Grassmugg, and Sarah Seinitzer (Web)

Time: 07.-08.03.2023
Venue: Univ. of Graz, Universitätspl. 3 and Mozartg. 14

This workshop gives space to female and other underrepresented scientists and philosophers who have been formative for philosophy, science, or the history of science in the course of history and who have received little or no attention in the previous (philosophy and science) historiography. The workshop strives for a cross-epochal orientation, through which it becomes possible to shed light on the participation of women and other underrepresented groups in the history of philosophy and science. The one-and-a-half-day colloquium will be interdisciplinary, and this interdisciplinarity should make it possible to look at the event’s topic beyond the disciplines’ boundaries.
Based on the idea “From Young Researchers For Young Researchers,” the organisers want to create a stage for young researchers, i.e. philosophers and scientists in their master or dissertation phase.
