... Spring 1999 ISHPSSB Newsletter, Continued


SPECIAL OFFERS FOR MEMBERS

From: David Magnus <[log in to unmask]>

Beginning in 1999 there will be a special rate of USD$50 for members of
the International Society for the History, Philosophy, and Social
Studies of Biology (ISHPSSB) for the journal Biology and Philosophy
(BIPH).  Members of this society can subscribe to the Journal of the
History of Biology (HIST) for the same rate, also beginning 1999.  If
society members subscribe to both journals, they can receive both for a
price of USD$90.

We will soon be sending out a mailing making it possible to sign up.  


ISHPSSB Membership Directory

Members are invited to request a copy of the ISHPSSB Directory by
sending a request to David Magnus, the Society secretary.  The first
copy is free. Members who would like a second copy of the directory are
asked to forward a check for $3.00 payable to the Society to cover
copying and mailing costs.  The directory is updated at the beginning of
each year; members submitting requests after February 1 will receive a
copy of the latest directory.  



SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

Jill E. Cooper
Jill E. Cooper completed her dissertation "Of Microbes and Men:  A
Scientific Biography of Rene Jules Dubos" at Rutgers University in
October 1998.  She is currently a post-doctoral fellow in history at the
Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research in New
Brunswick.  


Marjorie Grene Prize
The Marjorie Grene Prize is intended to advance the careers of younger
scholars, and will be awarded to the best manuscript based on a paper
presented at one of the previous two ISHPSSB meetings by someone who
was, at the time of presentation, a graduate student.

Graduate students presenting papers at the meeting in Oaxaca should
start planning now to submit their work in next year's competition!

It is very appropriate for ISHPSSB to name this prize in Marjorie
Grene's honor.  Her work in history and philosophy of biology has
provided models for many ISHPSSB members, and exemplifies the spirit of
pursuing interactions among the fields within ISHPSSB; she played a
central role in bringing together the scholars in the meetings that
became the pre-history of ISHPSSB; and she has been a mentor to many of
the leading members of the Society.

The award consists of a certificate and up to $200 towards expenses
incurred in attending the following meeting of the Society and not
reimbursed from another source.  If the manuscript is not already under
review by a journal, the prize committee will promote the winning entry
to one of the leading journals.  The prize will not be awarded this
year, lacking a sufficiently large pool of applicants.

Nature and Belief in American Communal Societies:  Association for the
Study of Literature and the Environment
When:  June 2-5, 1998
Where:  Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI

In The Death of Nature, Carolyn Merchant points to seventeenth-century
English sects such as the Diggers and the Ranters that sought to
establish "egalitarian communal societies like those attempted by the
medieval millenarian utopists."  They challenged not only the
socio-economic hierarchy of their time, but the emerging mechanistic
world-view on which it was based, according to Merchant.  While the
lessons of science taught the general populace that the material world
could be subjected to human control, these sects drew from the thought
of Paracelcus to envision a nature filled with God, of which they were a
part.

Communal societies guided by religious precepts, such as those mentioned
by Merchant, have sprouted across the American landscape throughout its
history.  Few studies of such communities have taken any sustained look
at questions concerning the relationship between man and nature raised
by current environmentalist thought.  This panel will examine the
philosophies that underlie the practices of various American communal
societies, from their earliest appearances to the present day.
Pertinent issues to address include:  How do religious precepts of the
group define nature and the relation between man and nature?  Is the
religious philosophy of the group based on an interpretation of some
biblical text, or any other text?  Has the community generated its own
written texts articulating the beliefs of the group?  To what extent is
the place of nature within the practical structure of the community
mediated by written texts?  Is there any relationship between the place
of women in the community, and the philosophy of nature implied or
directly stated within the belief system of the community?
Historically, certain communities have experienced a weakening in their
spiritual practices and convictions as their material fortunes
improved.  Does the community's attitude toward nature play any role in
the changes in its fortunes?  What is the connection between the group's
millenialist philosophy (presuming it has one) and its relation to
nature?  What implications does this have for us, as we simultaneously
confront the exhaustion of natural resources, possibilities of economic
collapse, and a rash of apocalyptic visions occasioned by the coming
millenial year?

Science-in-Society, Society-in-Science:  A Workshop Fostering Critical
Thinking about Science & Technology in their Social Context
Monday July 26, 1999, 9:00am-5:00pm
(Please bring to the attention of teachers in the New England area)

This summer the Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT) Program at the
University of Massachusetts, Boston is bringing together teachers,
students, and other concerned citizens to participate in a day of
workshops and presentations given by innovative and inspiring teachers.
These teachers will engage you through case studies ranging from genetic
testing to population growth and environment, computers and gender
equity to disputes over scientific integrity.

You will learn how placing developments in science and technology in
their social context can enliven and enrich science education, science
popularization, and citizen activism.  The sessions are designed to
stimulate a range of participants: K-12 teachers wanting make the
science, technology and human affairs an integral part of their science
or social studies classes; high school and college students wanting to
keep sight of the social implications of their studies in science; and
citizens wanting to promote active social debate about the directions
taken in science and technology.

You will experience model class activities, be informed of resources,
receive a directory of participants and other printed materials, and
become linked to networks for support and inspiration for your
subsequent efforts.

'Nature's Nation' Reconsidered: American Concepts of Nature from Wonder
to Ecological Crisis:  European Association for American Studies
Conference 2000
When:  April 14-17, 2000
Where:  Graz, Austria

Today's advanced understanding of nature calls for a drastic
re-conceptualization of traditional ideas about our relation to the
natural environment. At the beginning of a new millennium an adequate
understanding of 'nature' will be of utmost importance, and an
investigation into the dominant ideas and attitudes of a nation and
culture powerful enough to change that environment on a global scale
would seem highly appropriate. A host of historical, socio-political and
economical as well as cultural, literary, and psychological approaches
can be applied to the theme in an attempt to understand the place and
function of nature in American history (and the history of American
self-definition) as well as the current manifestations of a new interest
in nature in various areas of American culture and society. Lectures and
workshops could thus inquire into the powerful impact the idea of nature
had on American society and culture in the past, but also into the
creative ("utopian") potential it still has in contemporary
conceptualizations of alternative or different lives (and life styles).
They could explore the multitude of myths and concepts relating to
'nature' and 'America' (European and American projections, Jeffersonian
ideals and agrarian myths from the early republic to the New Deal, from
pastoral self-confinement to the dynamics of westward expansion),
conservation movements (the establishment of national parks and natural
museums), nature writing, the representation of nature in literature,
the arts, photography and film. They could also deal with Native
American natural religion and its echoes in contemporary mainstream and
(ethnic) counter-culture(s), with ecological movements in politics and
the arts, with eco-feminism; or with the various manifestations of
'artificial' nature in plastic or in cyberspace.

PUBLICATIONS OF INTEREST

Agner Fog, Cultural Selection, (Dordrecht:  Kluwer, 1999).

Interdisciplinary treatise giving a comprehensive overview of cultural
selection theory - a theory of social change based in part on
evolutionary thinking.  Challenges traditional sociology by its superior
ability to explain the irrational, unplanned, or unwanted aspects of a
culture.

Cultural selection theory is broader than memetics, because it includes
selection processes that can not be expressed in terms of information
units.  Demonstrates a causal connection between the peacefulness or
bellicosity of a society and its cultural expressions: political ideals,
discipline, philosophy, morals, art, and music.

The book examines examples from many different aspects of culture,
including:  the history and evolution of religions; political history;
economic competition; the spread of myths, stories, beliefs, jokes,
etc.; witchhunts and moral panics; the role of mass media in social
change; sexual behavior and the development of sexual morals; art,
music, dance, clothing; play, games, sport; political consequences of
the theory.  Excerpts from the book can be seen at:

OAXACA 1999:  PRE-MEETING WORKSHOP
Teaching HPSSB & Biology:  Oaxaca, Wednesday, July 7.

Additional participants are welcome in a pre-conference workshop on
teaching HPSSB & Biology being arranged by the ISHPSSB Education
Committee.  The goal is for participants to learn from each others'
efforts enlivening science education, science popularization, and
citizen activism by placing developments in science and technology in
their social context.  Participants will take turns to lead discussion
around a paper, syllabus, or lesson plan and/or to lead the other
participants in activities derived from or adaptable to classrooms and
other contexts.  This latter format comes from the International Society
for Exploring Teaching Alternatives
(http://www.asu.edu/upfd/www/iseta).  One example of an ISETA session
proposal can be viewed at http://omega.cc.umb.edu/~ptaylor/iseta98.html,
but quite different approaches are expected according to the subject
material.

To join the workshop, which will start in the morning of Wednesday, July
7. and may overlap with some of the first afternoon's sessions, contact

information in the membership files is out of date (e-mail addresses
seem especially volatile), please provide the new information to the
society treasurer/membership secretary.

Graduate students qualify for a reduced membership fee -- only US $ 10
for two years.  Emeritus members pay no fee.  Otherwise a regular
membership is US $ 35 for two years.

All checks must be in US $; payment by Visa/Mastercard is welcome.
Credit card payments can be sent electronically.  (As far as we
