The History of Science Society (HSS) will hold its 2023 annual meeting in Portland, Oregon, USA. The meeting will be in-person. We are planning to host a virtual festival with limited slots for members to share their work who are unable to attend in person. If you are interested in attending the virtual festival, do indicate this in your submission.

Our conference theme is Shifting Standards, Creating Change. We invite submissions on any topic in the history of science, but we especially encourage proposals of organized sessions and roundtables that address aspects of the conference theme, that may include, but are not limited to

  • Decolonial approaches to the history of science
  • Public health, biomedicine, and science policies and politics
  • Indigenous knowledges and practices
  • The ethics of data collection practices and standards
  • Historical trends of how “change” has been understood 
  • Justice-based approaches to enacting change in the profession
  • Historicizing norms or standards in science and medicine
  • Museum and archival stewardship, collecting, and display practices
  • Historiographic revisions and reparations
  • Diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice in science, technology, and medicine
  • How research in specific areas of the history of science constructs (new) standards for pedagogy, practice, and governance
