ISHPSSB 2023, 9-15 JULY 2023

University of Toronto and Western University Ontario

We invite submissions for the next International Society for the 
History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Biology biennial meeting, 
which will take place in Toronto, Canada, 9-15 July 2023.

Returning to in-person meetings after the four-year hiatus, the Council, 
Local Organizing, and Program Committees are working to put together an 
exciting program inspired by socially relevant work on biology and the 
life sciences, contemporary challenges of climate change and the 
pandemics, the growing global interests into indigenous ways of knowing, 
and knowledge and concerns of the local communities living in the 
Toronto and Ontario area and around the Great Lakes. To do so, we are 
building on the ISHPSSB membership; keynote lecture and a panel that 
will highlight these themes, the strengths of local communities of 
scholars in HPS, the social studies of science, sciences and museum 
studies; and exploring new and established topics through engaging and 
innovative formats.

As our keynote speaker, Deborah McGregor (York University) will present 
on climate and environmental justice, and an interdisciplinary public 
panel will discuss how environmental degradation, indigeneity, human 
right to water and health all intersect in and around the Great Lakes. 
The panelists are Patricia Corcoran (University of Western Ontario), 
Blaire Morseau (University of Massachusetts Boston), Jennifer Read 
(University of Michigan), and Marsha Richmond (Wayne State University). 
These conversations will be complemented with a tour of the Royal 
Ontario Museum natural history and world cultures collections, walking 
through the causes, consequences and solutions to climate crisis.
