Bucharest Colloquium in Early Modern Science: Mathematical mixtures - disciplines, epistemic genres and systems of practices in the (early) modern world  

March 13-15, 2018  


Invited speakers: Arianna Borrelli (Technical University, Berlin), Hasok Chang (University of Cambridge), David Marshall Miller (University of Iowa), Cesare Pastorino (Technical University, Berlin), Friedrich Steinle (Technical University, Berlin).  

The seventh edition of the Bucharest Colloquium in Early Modern Science will focus on the interplay between quantification, practice(s) and the emergence of new epistemic genres in the early modern period (broadly conceived). We are especially interested in the several ways in which debates on epistemic genres and disciplinary boundaries contributed to the shaping of new “forms of mathematization” from the 16th century to the 18th century (and beyond).  

One of our aims with this colloquium is to bring together scholars coming from different disciplines, thus cutting across the established divisions and traditional temporal delimitations. We invite papers coming from history of science, history of philosophy, philosophy of scientific practices, STS, &HPS etc., dealing with case studies coming from the 16th to the18th century. We hope that methodological tolerance and historical diversity can improve our understanding of the wide diversity of “mathematical mixtures” which were so essential for the emergence of the modern sciences.

 

To submit a proposal, please send a 500 word abstract and a short CV to dana.jalobeanu@gmail.com by December 10; notification of acceptance by December 20.  

Bucharest Colloquium in Early Modern Science is jointly organized by the Institute for Research in the Humanities, ICUB, and the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Bucharest, as part of the research project The Emergence of Mathematical Physics in the Context of Experimental Philosophy (PNIII- P4-ID- PCE 2016-0228, 2017-2019).

  The Bucharest Colloquium is followed by the Bucharest Graduate Conference in Early Modern Philosophy (March 16-17); participants to the Colloquium are warmly invited to join the Graduate Conference as well.
