Con motivo de cumplirse próximamente 150 años de la publicación del Origen de las Especies se van a llevar a cabo diversos actos a nivel internacional. Éste, que tendrá lugar en Dinamarca en febrero de 2008, tiene muy buen aspecto. Para más datos pinchar en www.stm.au.dk/darwin2008
7-8 February at the University of Aarhus, Denmark
In 2009 Charles Darwin will be celebrated around the world for his 200th
birthday 12 February and the 150th anniversary for the publication of
On the Origin of Species. Already preparations are in full swing at schools,
universities, museums, production companies and publishing houses.
The internet is buzzing with excitement and antievolutionists are preparing
for a counter strike. But where does that leave historians of science?
What is our role? What can we do? How do we contribute to the Darwin anniversaries?
Is this time for
reflection or time for action? You decide! Come
to Aarhus in February 2008 and let us talk about it -- seriously.

CALL FOR PAPERS:
We invite proposals for papers on the many different receptions, uses and abuses of Darwin and evolution in the almost 150 years since the publication of On the Origin of Species in an effort to explore what we as historians are saying about Darwin today. We would like each speaker to have in mind a critical look at our profession, at what we are doing, for whom we are doing it and why.
DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS: 1 DECEMBER 2007.
