We invite scholars (at the doctoral, post-doctoral, or pre-tenure rank) to apply for participation in a 3day workshop organised by the Project on Race & Gender in Science & Medicine at the Hutchins Centre for African and African American Research at Harvard University.

The workshop, “From Missing Persons to Critical Biography:  Reframing Minority Identity in the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine,” will convene 12 senior and 12 junior scholars to discuss concepts of minority identity that have shaped both the fields of the history of science, technology, and medicine (HTSM) and historical patterns of participation in those scholarly fields by persons of various ascribed identities, specifically race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality or disability.

Understanding the social conditions of history writing and the content of historical narratives to be inseparable, we seek with this workshop to critique ideas of diversity and inclusion as they have shaped both institutional and historiographic agendas surrounding HTSM. For this workshop we invite applications from scholars who have conducted historical research on identity at the margins of the scientific, medical and technical enterprise. We also invitethose who maintain an interest in the role of identity within HTSM  nstitutions or within these fields’ epistemic commitments more broadly. Participants will offer brief, informal descriptions of their work and interests during the workshop. Workshop leaders will provide more formal reflections on their work.

Interested scholars should submit a CV and a brief statement explaining why they wish to attend the workshop (500 words maximum). Support for travel and accommodation is available and those interested should also send the attached financial aidapplication. Send materials to: Evelynn Hammonds at Evelynn_Hammonds@harvard.edu, Amy Slaton at slatonae@drexel.edu and Ann Marie Healey at healey@fas.harvard.edu by  September 8, 2016. Notification of acceptance and support will be made bySeptember  12, 2016.
