‘Being a Minority in Medieval and Early-modern Sciences’ workshop (IHN PAN & IFiS PAN)

January 25-26, 2024
Warsaw, Poland

Last few weeks have been pretty abundant in events – and so at the beginning of 2024 we hosted another meeting.

The ‘Being a Minority in Medieval and Early-modern Sciences’ workshop organized jointly by Dr. Josefina Rodríguez-Arribas (PASIFIC Fellowship Programme, Institute for the History of Science PAN), Prof. Valentina Lepri (Centre for the History of Renaissance Knowledge, Institute of Philosophy and Sociology PAN), and Prof. Jarosław Włodarczyk (Institute for the History of Science PAN) took place on January 25-26, 2024, in the Staszic Palace.

Participants from all over the Europe had a chance to listen to two keynote lectures, each on every morning of the event, total of fourteen presentations on a rich variety of topics, from the study of natural sciences and health practitioners, through female awareness and knowledge, up to monsters and unicorns (!), to discuss their thoughts, ideas, and future research propositions on the forum, during the round table as well as a couple coffee breaks. Besides the above, researchers were invited to take a walk through the Old Town of Warsaw, as well as enjoy their time together at two dinners.

The full programme of the event, along with the photos taken during the meeting, is available on the website and serves as a nice memento of this workshop. We hope that this meeting will result in further successful cooperation!
