Call for Marjorie Grene Prize Submissions

ISHPSSB seeks submissions for the 2009 Marjorie Grene Prize. This 
prize is intended to advance the careers of younger scholars, and 
will be awarded to the best manuscript based on a presentation at one 
of the two previous ISHPSSB meetings (Guelph or Exeter) by someone 
who was, at the time of presentation, a graduate student.

It is very appropriate for ISHPSSB to name this prize in Marjorie 
Grene's honor. Not only does her work in the history and philosophy 
of biology exemplify the strong spirit of interdisciplinary work 
fundamental to ISHPSSB, but she played a central role in bringing 
together diverse scholars of biology even before the formation of the 
Society. She has been a valued mentor to many members of the Society 
and a long-standing inspiration to all.

The award will consist of a certificate and an award of $500.

Submissions should be in the form of a paper prepared for submission 
to a professional journal, with an indication of the journal in 
question and whether the paper is already in review. Submissions can 
be in the form of papers already accepted for publication. 
Electronic submissions, in Microsoft Word or PDF format, are 
preferred and must be emailed no later than March 1, 2009. Hardcopy 
submissions must include three complete copies of the paper and be 
mailed no later than March 1, 2009. The winning entry will be 
announced by May 1, 2009.

Please submit papers to Tara Abraham, 
<mailto:[log in to unmask]>[log in to unmask]; Department of 
History, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON N1G 2W1 CANADA.
