--------Message 1 of 3: Max-Planck-Institute Call for Papers---------

The Max-Planck-Institute for the History of Science Berlin is
inviting scholars from a wide variety of disciplines, including
historians of science, art and literature, medicine, law, and
economics, to submit paper proposals for its forthcoming workshop
"Cultural History of Heredity II: Eighteenth to Nineteenth
Centuries". This workshop, scheduled for January 10-12 2003, is part
of a series of workshops forming the backbone of a long term research
project on the cultural history of heredity that aims to uncover the
technical, juridical, medical, and scientific practices in which the
knowledge of inheritance was historically anchored in different
epochs and to understand the genesis of today's naturalistic concept
of heredity. For further information see call for papers at or e-mail to
