To foster interest in the history of science, promote discussion of science’s social
and cultural relations, and bring this understanding to others worldwide.

Welcome to Utrecht! This is the HSS’s first meeting outside of North America,
and represents a tentative step in affirming that the Society is an international
body. Sister societies such as SHOT and 4S regularly meet outside the confines
of North America and that they are able to do so is due to strong local support.
The local arrangements group for Utrecht was vital to the 2019 HSS confer-
ence, and I am grateful to our hosts, especially the Descartes Center, for their
help. The conference simply would not have happened without their assistance.
Our program co-chairs, Christine von Oertzen (Max Planck Institute for
the History of Science) and Simon Werrett (University College London)
dedicated untold hours to the 2019 program, trying to coordinate the more
than 350 presentations for the conference. Only former program chairs know
the challenges that reside in assembling the annual meeting. Simply trying
to accommodate requests that range from favored presentation times to the
choice of commentator can test the coolest temper. They have my deep thanks
for their efforts. I am also grateful to Karen-Beth Scholthof (Texas A&M
University), who chairs the Committee on Meetings and Programs. She and
they have provided valuable guidance, and I am grateful for their leadership.
Our Local Arrangements Committee, chaired by David Baneke (Utrecht
University), boldly handled the 1000s of details that each conference demands,
and this meeting had more demands than usual. His main helpers were Ariane
den Daas and Annemarijn Douwes who were simply marvelous, as was our
meeting manager, Odette Jansen. They were joined by the dozens of volunteers,
mostly students, who will try to make sure that delegates receive proper care.
The annual meeting would look more like a mystifying opera while a
fire raged backstage without the efforts of Ryan Feigenbaum, our Society
Coordinator and digital master. Ryan handled every step, from tweaking
our conference-management system (in its second year), to fielding
hundreds of requests for help, to posting helpful updates, to closing the
books on our fiscal year, which has nothing to do with the conference but
is just as important. Please give him a hearty thanks when you see him.
A conference outside of our usual North American confines offers financial
challenges, and we rely heavily on sponsors and supporters to help us control
expenses. I would like to recognize three in particular: the University of Notre
Dame for its hosting of the Executive Office, the National Science Foundation
for its support of travel grants for graduate students, independent scholars,
and recent PhDs (SES-1656205), and Utrecht University’s Descartes Center.
When I first started seeing the prospective costs for the meeting I began to
panic, but Bert Theunissen, Director of the Descartes Center, said the expenses
would not be a problem, and he has been true to his word. In the near or

distant future, when you remember HSS in Utrecht, please also remember
that the Descartes Center was central to any fond memory. There are many
others who helped us, and a full list of supporters can be found on the back
cover of the program. I appreciate, beyond words, their contributions.
And on the subject of beyond words, the HSS Executive
Committee provided understanding, encouragement, and wisdom
on all aspects of the meeting. These officers dedicate hundreds of
hours to the HSS —they too, have my profound thanks.
Finally, I must thank you, the attendees, who make this all worthwhile.
Your presence, your contributions, and your involvement create a mix
that cannot be replicated. And if you are not a member of the HSS,
please join us—it is our members who make all of this possible.

Emergency Number: 112
The center of Utrecht is very safe. There may be pickpockets, like in any busy
place, but it is no problem to walk around alone at any time of day or night.
The main safety hazard is also one of Utrecht’s most celebrated features: its bike
culture. The conference website can tell you how to get from A to B, but it does
not inform you about the laws of the Utrecht traffic jungle. So here they are:
1. In all of Utrecht, bikes are king of the road.
2. It takes a large bus or truck to intimidate a bike. Anything & anyone
else is expected to give way. This even includes HSS participants.
3. Bikes don’t follow rules. Mundane things such as traffic lights, one-
way streets or pedestrian zones are regarded as optional guidelines.
4. Bike parking is allowed everywhere, even where it is not
(cf. rule 3). The only exception is the Drift canal, where
parked bikes will be actively removed by the officials.
5. Stealing bikes is not allowed, but bike thieves also seem to adhere
to rule 3. It is not unusual to have a bike lock that is more expensive
than your bike (this also says something about the quality of most
bikes). Incidentally, the largest bike parking garage in the world is
being built near the station, with room for 12,500 bikes. Another
one, with room for 4,200 bikes, is located on the other side of the
station. It is not clear whether or not this will be enough space.
– David Baneke

When the Society first started planning a conference outside of North America,
back in 2013, we naturally turned to Utrecht, which was the new site of our ed-
itorial office. Because HSS had never met in Europe, nor in any place not called
Canada or the United States, we recognized that this would be an experiment;
it was a way of altering the variables of our typical meeting to see what worked
and what could be discarded as we sought to broaden our international stature.
As plans unfolded, so did the variables, so that the 2019 conference will scarcely
be recognizable to those who faithfully attend HSS. Here’s what to expect.
Why no meeting in November? Since the early 1990s, when we stopped
meeting with the American Historical Association in December of certain
years, the HSS has almost always met in November. When we first considered
meeting in Europe, we recognized that the majority of our attendees would be
coming from North America, and we knew that a November conference would
be difficult for those trying to juggle the conference with their classrooms and
their jobs: a feat that our non-North American colleagues are somehow able to
accomplish each year. We thought it would be nice to extend the conference
by a day, to allow more time for recovery from long flights and to give people
more opportunities to connect, which would be difficult in November. We
also wanted to use the facilities at the University, which would save us tens
of thousands of dollars in a/v and wifi costs, and which would not have been
possible during the term (our a/v and wifi bill for Seattle was just shy of
$45,000 US). It would also give our delegates the opportunity to experience
fully the largest university in the Netherlands and give delegates a sense of
what HSS conferences used to be like when we regularly met on campuses.
But a particular challenge in holding a summer meeting is that many sister
societies hold summer conferences, and we did not want to interfere with
those. We first confirmed that the European Society for the History of
Science was not meeting (their conference is biennial, in even-numbered
years), and we also wanted to make sure that we did not overlap with
the British Society. We tried to coordinate the timing with the ISHPSSB
meeting in Oslo, which proved impossible, but we were able to synchronize
the dates with the large quadrennial Division of Logic, Methodology, and
Philosophy of Science and Technology, which is meeting in Prague in

early August. Those dates were perfectly aligned until I receive a panicked
message from our local hosts to inform us that the Jehovah’s Witnesses
would be holding an international congress in Utrecht over our dates and
some 45,000 JWs would be in town leaving no hotel space for miles around.
We could not move later in August so we moved a bit earlier, to July.
Where is the big box hotel? The short answer is that there is no hotel in
Utrecht that could hold our meeting and even the ones with a large number
of sleeping rooms do not have conference space, which we would have been
forced to rent. Although there are advantages to everyone being in one location
for the conference, there are also some obvious drawbacks to spending days
in a large corporate structure. The advantages for the large hotel include free
meeting space if we meet our sleeping block and although we are not paying
for university space, we did have to rent venues that could hold large crowds
for the plenary, the distinguished lecture, and the Elizabeth Paris lecture
(the Janskerk, the Domkerk, and the railway museum, respectively). The
advantage is that we will be in beautiful spaces, some of them dating back
to the Middle Ages, and we hope that this will improve your experience.
Attendees will also have a chance to see the city – Utrecht is a lovely Stad
– and when we meet in a hotel, some attendees never leave the grounds.
Where is the center? Another plus for a hotel meeting is that the center
of activity is located in the book exhibit and meeting registration area.
“Let’s meet at the book exhibit” is a common phrase. We have tried to
reproduce that for Utrecht with the exhibit (the town square) being
located in Drift 21, along with registration. We will have a room there
where people can relax “The Meeting Point,” and we will offer coffee and
tea throughout the day. Drift 21 is a lovely building and we initially had
many of our sessions located there, but the building has no lift, which
immediately ruled out assigning sessions above the ground floor.
Will anyone come? Since 2/3 of the HSS membership is located in North
America, we worried a great deal about attendance. We had spoken to
colleagues at SHOT and 4S and they reported that their attendance for
such meetings did not drop off, that people who typically did not attend
their conferences would come. This has proven true with Utrecht – in fact,
even more so. We saw the highest number of submissions in many years and
we expect our attendance will be equal to – or may surpass – the number
of delegates who attended our conferences in Chicago and San Francisco.
Anyway, we are glad that you are here. If you are not a member of HSS, please
join us. These conferences would not be possible without our members.

Respectful Behavior Policy
Freedom of expression and vigorous debate are crucial to scholarly exchange.
The History of Science Society strongly values mutual respect and strives to
provide an environment for exchange that is free from bias and intimidation.
The Society is dedicated to securing a safe, hospitable, and productive
environment for everyone. Accordingly, the Society deplores all harassment
and is sensitive to the harm suffered by persons who experience it. We
expect speakers and questioners at our meetings to demonstrate self-control
and civility, even in the midst of strong disagreement, and not to engage
in ad hominem attacks. Furthermore, we expect those participating in the
Society’s meetings and events to treat others with respect and not to engage
in behavior that is discriminatory, intimidating, threatening, or harassing.
This expectation applies to our speakers, staff, volunteers, and attendees.

Nondiscrimination and Anti-Harassment Standards

The Society prohibits any unwelcome conduct that is based on an individual’s
sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, gender identity, race, color,
religion, national origin, age, marital status, disability, or employment status
and that creates an environment that a reasonable person would consider
intimidating, hostile, or abusive. Harassment may include such actions as:
(1) inappropriate physical contact; (2) inappropriate jokes or verbal kidding
or teasing; (3) verbal abuse and epithets; (4) degrading comments; (5) the
display of offensive or sexually suggestive objects or pictures; (6) conduct or
comments of a lewd or lascivious nature, including subtle pressure for sexual
activity; (7) repeated offensive sexual flirtations, advances, or propositions;
and (8) any other conduct that the individual (or group of individuals)
might reasonably find to be intimidating, hostile, offensive, coercive, or
threatening. Sexual harassment does not refer to occasional compliments of
a socially acceptable nature or consensual personal and social relationships.

If an individual or group of individuals believes that they have experienced
any violation of this policy at a Society meeting or event, the person or
group should report the incident immediately to the Society Ombudsperson
(ombudsperson@hssonline.org). Although anyone may seek advice from
the Ombudsperson, only the individual or individuals alleging that they
have been harassed may file a complaint. The Ombudsperson shall listen
to the grievance, describe the policy and procedures, outline issues of
privacy and confidentiality, and discuss possible courses of action regarding
the filing or non-filing of a formal complaint. The Ombudsperson shall
take all reasonable efforts to maintain in strict confidence the identity of

individuals reporting an incident and the person or persons implicated
in an incident. The Ombudsperson shall prepare for Council annually
an aggregate, anonymized summary of all such reported incidents.
If an individual elects to file a formal complaint, that person must describe
the incident in a non-confidential written statement delivered to the
Ombudsperson within sixty (60) calendar days of the alleged conduct and
preferably immediately following the incident. The Ombudsperson will
provide the statement concurrently to the accused party or parties and to the
three-person Respectful Behavior Review Committee. The accused party may
elect to file a written response, and if so, the written response must be filed
with the Ombudsperson within sixty (60) calendar days of receipt of the initial
written complaint. The Chair of the Committee shall contact both parties
to discuss the incident and determine whether there is a mutually acceptable
resolution. If no such resolution can be found, the Committee shall determine
whether the incident constituted harassment under the terms of this Policy.
If the Committee determines the incident constituted harassment, it shall
furnish a report of the incident, the Committee’s findings, and a recommended
sanction, if any, to the Secretary of the Council within sixty (60) days.

The Council shall consider the case. If a majority of the entire Council
concurs with the recommendations of the Committee, the Council
Executive Committee shall issue a written reprimand including
any sanctions banning the individual from future meetings and/or
revoking the individual’s membership. The Secretary of the Council
will report the outcome to all parties involved, which is final.

Statement on Scholarly Conduct
At its 18 June 2018 virtual meeting, the HSS Council endorsed the following
statement on professional conduct. The statement will appear on all HSS media.
HSS believes scholarly conduct should adhere to the highest ethical
and professional standards. The Society expects contributors to its
publications and meetings to present original work that respects
the integrity of the research process and that conforms to rigorous
standards in the citation and acknowledgment of the work of
other scholars. The American Historical Association’s Statement
on Standards of Professional Conduct is a useful guide.


We’re always looking for dedicated volunteers to help run the Society and
advance the history of science. Visit our website (hssonline.org) and click on

HSS Caucuses and Interest Groups
The History of Science Society has several caucuses and interest groups to serve
the numerous interests of its members. They are completely volunteer-driven
and make significant contributions not only to the annual meetings, but to the
Society and the field as a whole. Below are brief descriptions of each of these
organizations and any sponsored sessions appearing on this year’s program.
Note that membership in a caucus or interest group is not required to attend
a sponsored session or business meeting. If you are curious about a particular
group, please attend the business meeting and/or contact the current chair(s).

Graduate and Early Career Caucus

Co-Chairs: Kristine Palmieri & Sarah Naramore
Emerging from a collective consensus that the creation of a graduate
student and early career caucus within HSS would greatly benefit the
next generation of scholars, the GECC is working to improve resource
offerings for these groups in the coming year, through venues that
include, but are not limited to, their website, hssgecc.wordpress.com.
The chairs and officers are graduate students and early career members of HSS,
who act as liaisons between the committees of the HSS and the student/early
career constituency. The objective of the group is to facilitate communication
between caucus members and HSS regarding their concerns, issues, and ideas,
as well as potentially having representation on HSS committees in the future.

Women’s Caucus
Co-Chairs: Jenna Tonn & Alix Cooper
The Women’s Caucus of the History of Science focuses on the role and
status of women in the profession. The caucus serves as a forum for those
interested in the history of women, as well as the wider role of gender
in science, medicine, and technology. The caucus also helps sponsor and
administer the Dependent Care Grants and a nursing mother’s room at
the annual meeting. The co-chairs of the caucus act as a resource for the
History of Science Society on questions pertinent to the role and status
of women in the profession and in the Society. We also coordinate a list
serve and a Facebook group: facebook.com/groups/HSSwomenscaucus/.

Early Science Forum

Chair: Anne-Laurence Caudano
The Early Science Forum represents the interests of scholars of scientific and
technological work from antiquity through the seventeenth century. Our
broad chronological, geographical, and subdisciplinary sweep is intended
to foster communication and cooperation among scholars working on
diverse topics who nevertheless face similar institutional and methodological
obstacles. These include disciplinary fragmentation and marginalization,
as well as the challenges posed by working primarily with materials that
require additional language expertise or that prove difficult to access.


• Classifications and Categories in the Early Sciences
(Fri., 26 July, 09:00-09:45, Drift 25, Rm. 102)
• Business Meeting (Fri., July 26, 12:00-13:00, Drift 25, Rm. 103)

Earth and Environment Forum

Chair: Jeremy Vetter
The Earth and Environment Forum is a lively group of scholars interested
in histories of knowledge about the land, sea, and sky, and in all manner of
physical, human, and life sciences as they have been practiced outdoors, in
transit, or on a global scale. We share a long tradition of helping to welcome
students into the discipline, and we warmly encourage any interested parties
to join us for our annual get-together at HSS. At these meetings we make
introductions between scholars, renew friendships, and hear updates about
ongoing work in the history of the environmental and earth sciences.

• Business Meeting (Fri., July 26, 11:00-11:45, Drift 25, Rm. 206)

Forum for History of Human Sciences

Chair: Laura Stark
The FHHS was established to promote research, education, and
scholarship in the history of human science; to provide a forum
for discussion; and to foster interest in the history of human sci-
ence among scholars, scientists, students, and the public.
The Forum subscribes to a broad definition of human science
that encompasses such disciplines as anthropology, economics,
geography, history, linguistics, political science, psychiatry, psychol-
ogy, sociology, and statistics, as well as aspects of the biological and
physical sciences, medicine, education, law, and philosophy.


• Distinguished Lecture (Thu., 12:00-13:30, Drift 27, Eetkamer)

Forum for the History of Science in Asia

Chair: Minakshi Menon
FHSAsia is devoted to furthering scholarship in the history of science,
medicine, and technology in Asia. It aims to promote research and education
in the history of science in Asia, to provide a forum for discussion, and
to foster and support international collaboration among scholars working
in all areas related to the study and practice of the sciences in Asia.


• Science and Its Local Readers in British India (Fri.,

• Business Meeting (Fri., July 26, 12:00-13:15, Drift 27, Rm. 032)

Forum for the History of the Chemical Sciences

Chair: Jennifer Rampling
The Forum for the History of the Chemical Sciences (FoHCS) was organized in
2011 to facilitate the promotion of the history of the chemical sciences, broadly
conceived, within the History of Science Society. Its mission is 1) to organize
sessions at annual meetings of the HSS and at other meetings in which the

HSS is taking part, and 2) to encourage conversations both with professional
historians of alchemy and chemistry in other historical societies and historical-
ly-minded chemists in professional chemical societies in the U.S. and abroad.


• Intoxicating Histories: Chemicals and the Altered Body in the 19th
and 20th Centuries (Fri., July 26, 09:00-11:45, Drift 25, Rm. 101)
• Business Meeting (Fri., July 26, 11:45-12:15, Drift 25, Rm. 101)

Forum for the History of the Mathematical Sciences

Chair: Karen Parshall
The Forum for the History of the Mathematical Sciences serves as a focal
point for historians of the mathematical sciences within the History of
Science Society (HSS). It became an officially recognized HSS interest
group in 2008 in an effort both to encourage the participation of historians
of the mathematical sciences in the HSS and to raise awareness of the
subdiscipline in the history of science community, as opposed to the
mathematics community where it has long been firmly institutionalized.
FoHoMS has one face-to-face business and brainstorming meeting each year
at the HSS and regular e-mail exchanges throughout the rest of the year.


• Bourbaki Reconsidered: Origins, Operations, and Legacies
(Fri., July 26, 09:00-11:45, Drift 21, Rm. 005)

Physical Sciences Forum

Chair: Ann Robinson
The HSS Physical Science Forum is a voluntary association of individuals
interested in furthering scholarship in the history of the physical sciences as
broadly understood, including but not limited to: physics; earth, space, and
atmospheric science; astronomy; and materials science. It will help forge a more
coherent community for those with a core specialty in these sub-fields with
a particular emphasis on developing the connections linking these sub-fields
and exploring their resonance with wider scholarship. The ultimate goals are:
to foster generative dialogue and interaction within such a community for the
sake of refining historiography and deepening historical insights; to maximize
scholarly contributions to the history of science; and to integrate historians

Forum for the History of Health, Medicine and the Life Sciences
Chair: Elizabeth Neswald
The Forum for the History of Health, Medicine, and the Life Sciences
aims to create a venue at the HSS for historians of the medical and life
sciences (including nursing, traditional health practices, dentistry, veterinary
medicine, public health, pharmacy etc.) to engage in conversations across
disciplinary and chronological boundaries around shared themes and
methodological questions. It takes an inclusive approach to its represented
area, in order to promote chronological, geographic and thematic diver-
sity and broaden the potential for collaborative interactions. The Forum
organizes roundtables and sessions at the HSS, collaborates with societies
and associations for the history of medicine to promote cross-meeting
interaction, and supports graduate student work with its essay prize.


• Business Meeting (Fri., July 26, 09:00-11:45, Drift 25, Rm. 204)

– Proposed –
Collections, Archives, Libraries, and Museums (CALM) Caucus
Chairs: Benjamin Gross and Pedro Raposo
The Collections, Archives, Libraries, and Museums (CALM) Caucus aims to
provide a space for scholars interested in the history of collection-based institu-
tions or efforts to mobilize collections to explore the history of science, technol-
ogy, and medicine in new and creative ways. The CALM Caucus will also serve
as a venue where experienced professionals can provide guidance and support
to scholars seeking to pursue careers as curators, librarians, or archivists. In
this organizational meeting, the CALM Caucus will focus on gauging broader
interest in these topics and how best to address them at future HSS conferences.

Abstract: What are the narratives

that guide the history of science? For
sure one of the more recent ones was
“science in action,” the emphasis on
practices and the imperative on study-
ing science as performed. Perhaps
not surprisingly, this story has itself
a history, which starts in the early
1960s, when the project “Sources for
History of Quantum Physics” was
established. The main task of Thomas
Kuhn’s, John Heilbron’s and Paul
Forman’s work, lasting three years, was
to interview old heroes of Quantum
Mechanics and to archive the spoken
word. While giving an account of
the project’s history, this talk will
focus on analyzing the process of
interviewing and characterize its
wider context. Not only does their
approach offer us important insights
into the shaping of the persona of the
scientist, it also presents an important
