Conference: “Powers from the North”/ “Le Nord Électrique”

“Power from the North” is a two-day conference March 23 & March 24 at the University of Vermont. March 23 is designed to bring together policy makers, energy professionals and academics from both sides of the international border to consider the growing importance of the Quebec-Vermont/New England electric energy relationship. The conference intends to “tell the story” of this evolving relationship, to examine its economic and environmental consequences, and ultimately to inform present and future decisions regarding energy production, distribution and use in the Quebec-New England region, including the role that Quebec might play in de-carbonizing electric systems in Vermont.

For more information, see: http://www.uvm.edu/~crvt/?Page=news&storyID=19511&

Les 23 et 24 mars 2015,  l’Université du Vermont sera l’hôte d’une conférence à deux volets, intitulée   « Le nord électrique ». La première journée rassemblera décideurs politiques, professionnels de l’industrie de l’énergie et universitaires provenant des deux côtés de la frontière. Dans le contexte actuel, où les relations énergétiques électriques s’intensifient entre le Québec et le Vermont (et la Nouvelle-Angleterre dans une plus large mesure), les participants seront invités à « raconter l’histoire » de l’évolution de cette relation et à en examiner les motivations et les conséquences économiques et environnementales. Les décisions actuelles et futures concernant la production, la distribution et l’utilisation de l’électricité dans la région Québec/Nouvelle-Angleterre, seront également abordées, y compris le rôle que le Québec pourrait jouer dans la décarbonisation du système électrique du Vermont.

Call for Papers: Artifacts in Agraria Symposium

A pottery jug, rag rug, handmade nightdress, coal-oil lamp, plow, buggy, barn….  Some experiences of the agrarian past have escaped being put into language but survive long after the period under study as artifacts.

We invite proposals that begin with a material artifact of everyday life, either made or used, and explore it as a valid historical source that gathers meaning when understood in the context of surviving written records, family history, fashion trends and international commerce.  How is the artifact conceived and used by particular groups?  How does it connect aesthetic and cultural beliefs, symbolize self-identity, affirm values, tell stories, purvey heritage and have meaning ascribed to it through display?  We encourage papers that provide a better understanding of rural life in and beyond Canada, and that explore new methods or ways of viewing and contextualizing artifacts. Though organized by historians, we welcome ethnologists, archaeologists, art historians, cultural geographers, museum professionals and connoisseurs.

Please submit a 400 word proposal and 1 page CV to C. Wilson, cawilson@uoguelph.ca

For more information visit: www.uoguelph.ca/ruralhistory/

Deadline for proposals is 26 January 2015. Artifacts in Agraria Symposium, University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada, 17-18 October 2015

CFP: Consumer Technology/Technologies de consommation

**Call for Papers**

Scientia Canadensis invites interested scholars to submit proposals for research papers (approximately 7,500 to 10,000 words), research notes or exhibition reviews (approximately 2,500 to 5,000 words) for a special themed issue on Consumer Technology.

From automobiles to automated messages, personal technologies have come to shape the daily lives of nearly all Canadians. The history of consumer technology can reveal much about the material needs, social ideologies, gendered assumptions, and economic considerations of the peoples who used, rejected, and manipulated technologies of consumption. Why have Canadians favoured some technologies over others? Why (and when) do technologies fail? How have personal technologies influenced notions of work? Leisure? Masculinity? Femininity? Public space? Private space? What has been valued more — aesthetics or function? We invite proposals that consider these types of questions or deal with any aspect of consumer technology, including, but not limited to:

– Domestic goods: kitchen appliances, frozen foods, lighting fixtures, laundering technologies, sewing machines, barbeques, or even, entire homes;

– Gendered goods: lipstick, birth control pills, bras, power tools, condoms;

– Personal goods: telephones, personal computers, debit and credit cards, automobiles, cameras, bicycles

We also welcome submissions from students of museum studies or museum curators who have worked on or are working on special exhibits about consumer technology; these can include either temporary or permanent exhibitions that relate to consumer technology in Canada. Authors of exhibition reviews should include information on the concept and design of the exhibit, as well as its reception, if possible, while framing the discussion in relation to scholarship in the field. While Canada is our geographic focus, submissions that examine Canada in a comparative context would be very welcome.

Submissions should be in MS word format (.doc or .docx) with footnotes in University of Chicago humanities style, and should be accompanied by a detailed abstract no more than 250 words, as well as the author’s curriculum vitae. This special issue is scheduled to appear in print in winter 2012.

Please send all proposals electronically by June 1, 2012, to the guest editor, Dr. Dorotea Gucciardo, University of Western Ontario (dguccia@uwo.ca) and the journal editor, Dr. James Hull (james.hull@ubc.ca). Inquires as to the suitability of an article topic are welcome and may be directed to Dr. Gucciardo.

Scientia is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the history of science, technology, and medicine in publication since 1981, and includes specialized articles written by experts, notes about current research, critical book reviews, and bibliographies.
**Appel à communications**

Scientia Canadensis lance un appel de textes, sous forme d’articles (de 7500 à 10 000 mots), de notes de recherche ou de critiques d’expositions muséales (de 2500 mots à 5000 mots) et portant sur le thème des « technologies de consommation ».

De l’automobile à la messagerie automatique, les technologies de consommation personnelle ont façonné le quotidien des Canadiens. Leur histoire peut éclairer les besoins matériels, les idéologies, les présupposés de genre et les considérations économiques des gens qui utilisent, rejettent et manipulent ces technologies. Pourquoi les Canadiens ont-ils favorisé certaines technologies plutôt que d’autres ? Pourquoi, dans quelles conditions et à quel moment certaines technologies ont-elles été connu l’échec ? Comment les technologies à usage personnel ont-elles influencé les idées de travail, de loisir, de masculinité ou de féminité, ou encore d’espace public ou privé ? Qu’est-ce qui, de l’esthétique ou de la fonctionnalité de ces biens de consommation, à pesé le plus lourd dans la balance ? Nous sollicitons des propositions qui abordent ces questions ou qui traitent d’autres aspects de l’histoire des technologies de consommation personnelle, dont :

– les technologies domestiques (appareils électroménagers, aliments congelés, barbecues, machines à coudre, ou même des maisons entières) ;

– les biens de consommation genrés (rouges à lèvres, pilules contraceptives, outils électriques, préservatifs) ;

– les objets à usage personnel (téléphones, ordinateurs, cartes de débit ou de crédit, automobiles, caméras, bicyclettes).

Nous encourageons également les propositions d’étudiants en muséologie ou de conservateurs de musée ayant travaillé ou qui travaillent sur des expositions portant spécifiquement sur les technologies personnelles et les technologies de consommation au Canada. Les critiques d’exposition devraient offrir de l’information sur le concept et le design de l’exposition, et si possible sur sa réception, tout en situant l’exposition dans l’historiographie des rapports entre technologie et société. Même si l’appel de textes priorise l’espace géographique canadien, nous encourageons les contributions qui abordent le Canada sous un angle comparatif.

Les propositions doivent être transmises en format MS Word standard (.doc ou .docx), avec des notes de bas de page en format University of Chicago. Le texte doit être accompagné d’un résumé d’au plus 250 mots et du curriculum vitae de l’auteur. Le numéro sera publié en à la fin de l’année 2012.

Pour plus d’information ou pour soumettre un manuscrit, veuillez contacter la responsable du numéro spécial, Dr Dorotea Gucciardo de l’Université Western Ontario (dguccia@uwo.ca), ainsi que le rédacteur en chef de la revue, le professeur James Hull de l’Université de Colombie-Britannique (james.hull@ubc.ca). Les propositions devraient être transmises par voie électronique avant le 1er juin 2012.

Scientia Canadensis est une revue savante consacrée à l’histoire de la science, de la technologie et de la médecine. Elle publie depuis 1981 des articles spécialisés sur ces sujets ainsi que des notes de recherche, des essais critiques, des comptes rendus d’ouvrages et des bibliographies.

AHRC Collaborative PhD Studentship in the History of Science at the University of Leeds

>
> An AHRC-funded PhD studentship is available from 1 October 2011 for a collaborative research project between the Centre for the History and Philosophy of Science, University of Leeds and the Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds.
>
>
> ‘Gunpowder and the Rise of Early Modern Science’
>
> It is widely recognized that the emerging science of the seventeenth century demanded reciprocal interaction between theory and practice. Yet the fusion of scientific theory and military practice during the early modern era has attracted surprisingly little scholarly attention. This project will investigate the relationship between early modern science and gunpowder technology. What kinds of interactions took place between experimental philosophers and skilled craftsmen who had a shared interest in gunpowder technology? How did this relationship play out in complex historical reality? Why was gunpowder at the centre of a number of heated debates among the founder members of the Royal Society? Historical analysis will be aided by replication of gunpowder experiments and craft practices, drawing on the Royal Armouries’ technical and safety expertise. Through a focus on gunpowder technology, this project will yield important new insights into the relationship between theoretical abstraction and practical application as it features in early modern experimental science.
>
> Applications are invited from students in a variety of disciplines, e.g. history of science and technology, military history, economic history, experimental archaeology, intellectual history, and museum studies. We are looking to recruit a highly promising student who will relish the unique opportunities this award offers.
