2002 ISHPSSB Workshops: Call for Proposals
The International Society for the History, Philosophy, and Social
Studies of Biology (ISHPSSB) will authorize workshops in even-numbered
years (the off-years for the Society's regular biennial meetings), on an
ad hoc basis, with a clear application and approval process available on
request from Society President Lindley Darden or on the Society
webpage. These workshops must be thematic in nature, which will
distinguish them from the regular ISHPSSB meetings. They must be
interdisciplinary, and meet all the requirements of Society meetings
All members must be eligible to attend, although the selection process
for speakers can be determined by clearly indicated processes that
differ from those employed in ISHPSSB meetings. The Society will not
provide funding or other substantive assistance in preparing the
program, but the Society will provide a copy of the Society's mailing
list of members and publicity about the meeting through the appropriate
Society resources (e.g., email list, Web page).
The Society expects such meetings to rotate geographically, insofar as
there are multiple proposals.
Deadline for submission of proposals for 2002 ISHPSSB Workshops: October
Proposal guidelines can be found on the Society webpage:

". . . every once in awhile something so significant and so
incomprehensible comes along that it causes your life to pass before
"Like waking up from a bad dream, I was relieved to realize last week
as my life passed before me that thankfully, I chose to work and live in
"Where the love of knowledge and enlightenment, and yes, even an
occasional irreverence, frame my daily interactions.
"Where tolerance and diversity inform my daily work.
"And where a caring community enables all of us to carry on, even in
the face of the unknown."
