This year’s bi-annual meeting of the International Society for the History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Biology (ISHPSSB) takes place in Exeter, UK, 25-29 July 2007 — hosted by The Centre for Genomics in Society.
The ISHPSSB (“Ishkabibble” among friends) meetings are informal and relaxed summer meetings where a diverse crowd of people from all quarters of life science studies meet for 4-5 days. When I began to attend these meetings back in 1989 they were dominated by historians and philosophers interested in evolution (Darwinism), but over the last 15 years the programme has become much more varied. For an overview of papers relevant for the “Biomedicine on Display”-theme, see a report from the 2005 meeting in Guelph here.
All info you might ever dream of asking for can be found on the conference website: http://www.ishpssb.org/meeting.html. Deadline for online abstract submissions is 15 February.
