Following the successful three International Conferences on Science and Literature which took place in Athens, Poellau and Paris, this Conference is the fourth to be organized under the aegis of the Commission on Science and Literature DHST/IUHPST. The fourth International Conference will be organized by the Càtedra Dr. Bofill de Ciències I Humanitats (Dr Bofill Chair on Science and the Humanities) integrated at the University of Girona (UdG) with the technical support of the Commission on Science and Literature. As it was the case with the first three Conferences, the fourth one does not have a specific theme, as its intent continues to be the creation of an open forum for all scholars interested in Science and Literature. Nevertheless, the Conference will be organized along thematic sessions. Those proposed by the Organizing Committee are:
· Science in Western Art
· Literature and Medicine
· Science and Religion
· Poetry and Science
· Scientific Genres in Science Fiction
· Mathematics, Physics and Literature
· Women in the History of Science, Philosophy and Literature
Other themes, according to the papers accepted by the Scientific Committee, can be organized.
Proposals for individual papers or panels of three or four papers should be submitted from December 1st, 2019, until February 29th, 2020. They must include the title of the paper (or the theme of the panel), name and affiliation of the author(s), an abstract of no more than 350 words and a short CV. Proposals and inquiries about practical matters may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. An international scientific committee will review the submissions and notice of acceptance will be sent at the beginning of March 2020.
Juan Ortega will be the chair of the Local Organizing Committee.
