This listserv sends out brief descriptions only.  For further 
details, follow the link listed.

Please send me items to post to the list that would be of interest to 
Society members:  position announcements, postdoctoral announcements, 
grant and funding opportunities, conference announcements, calls for 
papers, and brief queries on research topics.  The sooner you send me 
something, the more likely that I will be able to have it posted 
before its deadline.

1. The Virginia Tech Darwin Celebration Committee announces the call 
for papers for a conference on Charles Darwin's On the Origin of 
Species after 150 Years, November 4, 2009 (20 days before the 
sesquicentennial of the publication of the Origin) at Virginia Tech's 
Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center in Blacksburg, 
Virginia.  Deadline for abstracts: May 15, 2009.  

2. The University of Minnesota Rochester (UMR) invites applications 
for an open-rank, tenure-track faculty position in Social 
Sciences/Humanities (preferred areas are history, philosophy, or 
social psychology) for its degree program, the Bachelor of Science in 
the Health Sciences (BSHS).  Review of applications began on January 
15, 2009, but will continue until the position is filled, so submit 
as soon as possible. 

3. Yale University invites applications for a two year postdoctoral 
fellowship in the Section of the History of Medicine, School of 
Medicine, beginning 1 July 2009. Historians working on any geographic 
area of the history of medicine since 1800 are encouraged to apply, 
but preference will be given to applicants whose primary research 
interests are in the history of women's health or in the history of 
health advocacy.  The deadline for submission is March 1, 2009, but 
applications will be considered on a rolling basis as they are 
received, and therefore applicants are encouraged to submit as soon 
as possible. 

4. Spaces remain for researchers (including graduate students) and 
teachers who are interested in moving beyond their current 
disciplinary and academic boundaries to explore "heterogeneity," 
especially in processes of development over the life course, for a 
workshop in Woods Hole, MA, "Heterogeneity and Development: Methods 
and Perspectives from Sciences and Science Studies." 

5. The International History, Philosophy, and Science Teaching Group 
(IHPST) announces the call for papers for the IHPST Tenth 
International Conference, June 24-28, 2009, University of Notre Dame, 
South Bend, IN.  Proposals are welcomed in all areas and periods of 
history and philosophy of science with implications for theoretical 
and pedagogical issues in science and mathematics teaching. 
Philosophers of education are also invited to contribute to these 
same issues.  Deadline for proposals: March 23, 2009. 

6. Scholars working in the area of history of evolutionary studies in 
Britain between WW1 and WW2 are invited to participate in a 
publishing project.  The goal is to create an anthology of 
peer-reviewed scholarly papers that both add substantively to the 
topic and relate the subject to historiographical themes in the 
broader history of science community. Proposals and queries are being 
sought now, with the goal of submitting papers by 15 September 2009. 

7. The journal Eighteenth-Century Thought welcomes papers and 
substantive discussion notes examining early modern thought pertinent 
to the fields of philosophy, natural philosophy, medicine, law, 
historiography, political theory, religion, economics, and the human 
sciences as they were conceived and pursued from the mid seventeenth 
century to the early nineteenth century. The journal is interested 
not only in publishing individual essays in these disciplines, but is 
especially interested in publishing studies that are themselves 
interdisciplinary, embodying methods or subject matter from more than 
one of these disciplines.
