Bucharest-Athens Workshop: Digital approaches in the history of science

24 May 2021

Online, 16-18 (Bucharest and Athens time)

The aim of the event is to bring together groups of scholars working in the history of science (broadly conceived) at the University of Bucharest and the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. It explores the new digital trends, beyond the constraints of virtual work produced by the pandemics. We’ll discuss the various ways in which available digital collections, computational techniques, and digital workflows complement the traditional work in the history and philosophy of science. For example, is there any lesson to learn from new forms of conceptualization and visualization of scientific change?

We explore ongoing research projects at both universities and reflect upon recent developments in the history and philosophy of science and related fields. Not least, we are keen to discuss about the interplay between “science” and “humanities” in the history (and philosophy) of science.

The format of the workshop is a roundtable discussion. You can join us with this link (via Google Meet): https://meet.google.com/pgz-spvw-nqh
