The Museum of Science of the University of Lisbon and the Portuguese Society of Chemistry are pleased to announce:
19th Century Chemistry: Spaces and Collections
1-4 February 2007 Museum of Science University of Lisbon Portugal
Registration deadline: 30 November 2006Abstract submission deadline:30 September 2006
A major international conference to celebrate the inauguration of the magnificent 19th century Laboratorio Chimico of the University of Lisbon and to explore and discuss challenges related to the role of scientific heritage in the history of science.
While museums today are often struggling with declining resources, are they prepared to meet the expectations of different groups, such as historians, scientists, and diverse audiences? What is the role of spaces of research and teaching such as laboratories and observatories in the history of science and public engagement with scientific research? What are the implications of these new demands for the daily routines of curators? Are curators aware of the needs of historians and are they trained to document scientific collections accordingly? Should curators engage more in the history of science? How can historians be induced to make more use of collections? Are historians of science trained to carry out collection-based research? How to articulate collections and scientific archives?
19th Century Chemistry: Spaces and Collections aims at contributing to a forward looking discussion of these issues and to enhancing the links between historians and curators in order to promote the material culture of chemistry.

Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent, Historian of Science at the Université de Paris X (keynoyte); Robert Anderson, Historian of Science, University of Cambridge, and former Director of the British Museum (keynote); Marco Beretta, Historian of Science, University of Bologna, and Vice-Director of the Istituto e Museo di Storia della Scienza Florence; Ursula Klein, Director of the Research Group on the History and Philosophy of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin; Liba Taub, Historian of Science and Director of the Whipple Museum of the University of Cambridge; Steven de Clercq, Vice-Chair of UMAC (Committee for University Museums and Collections of ICOM, the International Council of Museums) and former Director of Utrecht University Museum; Christoph Meinel, Historian of Science at the University of Regensburg; Alan Rocke, Henry Eldridge Bourne Professor of History, Case Western Reserve University (EUA); Antonio Garcia Belmar, Historian of Science at the University of Alicante.
