HPS&: Integrating HPS with Other Disciplines

Scholars from a number of academic disciplines dedicate themselves to studying the place of science in its historical, social, cultural, and intellectual contexts. The multifaceted approaches subsumed under the broad field of Science Studies – primary among these approaches being the History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) and Science and Technology Studies (STS) – offer opportunities to uncover and promote new images of science and scientific work. The work of Science Studies scholars provides perspectives on science that have far-reaching implications in realms such as scientific research, science policy, and science education.

Aiming to balance interdisciplinarity with integrated scholarship, the discipline of HPS is characterized by its willingness and ability to engage in a variety of interdisciplinary conversations in its pursuit of creating new images of science. In an effort to better articulate an integrated approach to the History and Philosophy of Science, many groups such as the Committee for Integrated HPS and their &HPS conference series have focused on sorting out the relationship between historical and philosophical methodologies within HPS. In an effort to build upon this work, the graduate students of the University of Notre Dame’s History and Philosophy of Science Ph.D. program, administered by the John J. Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values, will convene a two day conference on March 31 – April 1, 2023 around the theme of HPS and interdisciplinarity. The conference aims to step beyond conversations of integrated HPS and to explore how HPS scholars can interact with scholars from neighboring fields outside of HPS to promote interdisciplinary research into the place of science and technology in society.

The conference will include several keynote and invited speakers as well as graduate student talks.
