By David Kaiser, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

This year's annual meeting ofthe History
of Science Society will be held on 20-23
November in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The meeting will take place at the Hyatt
Regency hotel near the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology which features
beautiful views of the Charles River.
Those people who are flying in for
the meeting might choose Logan International
Airport in Boston, which is just five miles
from the conference hotel. Travelers coming
in from Logan Airport will benefit from one
of the first actual products of the ever-fabled
"big dig" construction project: a new tunnel
connecting the airport to various highways.
(If you haven't been to Boston in a while,
you'll be amazed by the new access to and
fromthe airport!) Boththe Providence, Rhode
Island and Manchester, New Hampshire
airports are also relatively close; from either
one you will need to take a bus for about one

hour to arrive in town. People who prefer the
train can travel to Boston's South Station, and
then pick up either the subway or a taxi to get
to the conference hotel.
The Hyatt Regency is
approximately one mile from the Kendall
Square subway station, offering easy access
to Cambridge and Boston. You can stroll
through MIT's campus enroute to the subway
and take in the new buildings some ofthem
still under construction including a Frank
Gehry design that is guaranteed to bring
knowing grins or frightened shrieks from all
passersby. In an interesting non-Euclidean
twist, you can even save some time on your
way to the subway station by walking through
MIT's famous "infinite corridor" (don't
worry, it only seems infinite).
Harvard Square is just two subway
stops away (or an inexpensive taxi ride), and
features restaurants in nearly every style and
price range. Two further stops on the subway
bring you to Davis Square in northern
Cambridge, which has blossomed during the
past several years and now features quite a
number of interesting restaurants. Both
Harvard and Davis Squares feature terrific
new and used bookstores, so you might want
to browse the shelves before taking in a meal.
Or you might want to sample the Italian
restaurants in Boston's famous North End,
right next to the Quincy Market and Faneuil
Hall, also easily accessible from the subway.
The subway can carry you to many
interesting sites around town. The Boston
Aquarium, Museum of Science, Museum of
Fine Arts, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner
art museum are all close to subway stops. Or
you can take in some shopping (or at least
fancy window-shopping) on Boston's
fashionable Newbury Street. If the weather

is nice, you might want to walk along the
three-mile "Freedom Trail" that snakes
through downtown Boston and Charlestown,
featuring dozens of historic sites from the
Revolutionary War era.
Cambridge and Boston are both great
walking cities, so bring a comfortable pair of
shoes. Cambridge in late November is likely
to be a bit chilly, perhaps even with some
snow, so come prepared with a warm jacket.

Categories in the History of Science:
Initiating a Discussion

Stephen P. Weldon, Isis Bibliographer

Most HSS members will now have had a chance to look over
the 2002 Current Bibliography. Apart from some stylistic changes
and the addition of a small subject index, the most significant
difference between this CB and its predecessors is the new category
schema. The changes here were driven by my beliefthat our discipline
had changed so substantially over the last fifty years that the old
category system did not adequately fit the needs of current scholars.
The changes that I introduced in the schema were the result
of years of personal use of the CB and a several-month-long process
of trial and questioning of colleagues in various subfields in the
history of science. I passed draft copies to many people before I
arrived at a form that seemed to most adequately capture a compromise
between the old system and new needs. I then continued to make
final adjustments as I struggled with the placementof actual citations.
As much as the final result seems to me to be a significant
improvement on the old system, the true test of its success or failure
is in its use. The bibliography is a tool for scholars throughout our
discipline, and I invite all who are interested in the problem of
categories to participate in a discussion about them.
To that end, I will be holding a forum at the next HSS
meeting where I can meet members face to face and talk through
some of the complex aspects of developing a category schema as
well as think about the need for further changes. The discussion will
take off from a couple of basic questions: what is working and what
is not? and where would people like to see further changes?
Essentially, I want to know from members and other interested
parties how they think the CB can best serve them today.
Before the forum in November, however, I wish to invite
people to write to me about the categories as they pick up and use the
CB. The more I understand how the Bibliography is working for
people and how it is not, the more I can focus our discussion at the
meeting. Finally, if it turns out that a consensus begins to emerge
urging more significant changes, I will try to form a working group
of interested members to think through the matter and develop some
concrete proposals.
The subject that I wish to focus on most specifically
concerns the categories as they appear in the annual print version of
the CB. Other related questions about the cumulative bibliography
and the RLG database will be set aside, at least for the purposes of
the November meeting.
As you think about the category problem, I would like you
to consider how the categories can best be made to match actual
usage and how much the bibliography should maintain continuity
with past practice. In addition, consider how you as a user work with
the print version of the CB and how that differs from your use of the
online RLG database.
I look forward to hearing from you. Please write to me at the

Science on the Stage

The New York City area recently hosted
two science-related, one-act plays:
Robert Marc Friedman's "Remembering
Miss Meitner" and Lauren Gunderson's
"Background." The performances were co-
sponsored by CUNY's Science Center and
the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center.
Gundersen's play focused on Ralph
Alpher and the development ofthe Big Bang
Theory through his work on cosmic
background radiation.
Friedman's play was an effort to
dramatize recent historical scholarship. The
play examines the ways and means of
remembering Lise Meitner's role in the
discovery of nuclear fission. In the Swedish
performances, Lise Meitner waves Ruth
Sime's Lise Meitner: A Life in Physics,
winner of the 1998 Watson Davis and Helen
Miles Davis Prize, and Friedman's own The
Politics of Excellence: Behind the Nobel
Prize in Physics at Otto Hahn and Manne
Siegbahn when confronting them with the
fact that "we are no longer who we once
were.... others are revealing that which we
could never speak.... The time has come to
set the record straight." Although largely
silent while she lived, Meitner now uses the
work of historians of science to confront
Hahn and Siegbahn (representing the Nobel
committees) over their inability to
acknowledge her contributions.

Historical Geography, an annual journal,
invites manuscripts for its 2004 issue. Each
year, the journal has a special topic section,
as well as research articles on any topic

The Seven Pines Symposium

he seventh annual Seven Pines Symposium was held from
May 7-11, 2003, on the subject, "The Concept of the
Vacuum in Physics."
The Seven Pines Symposium is dedicated to bringing
leading historians, philosophers, and physicists together for
several days in a collaborative effort to probe and clarify
significant foundational issues in physics, as they have arisen in
the past and continue to challenge our understanding today.
Twenty-one prominent historians, philosophers, and physicists
were invited to participate in this year's symposium.
Each day the speakers set the stage for the discussions
by addressing major historical, philosophical, and physical
issues related to the concept of the vacuum in physics. After an
introduction on the goals of the Seven Pines Symposium by Lee
Gohlike, the founder of the Symposium, the morning and
afternoon of Thursday, May 8, were devoted to the general topic
of "Early Views on the Vacuum." Speakers included Don
Howard (Notre Dame) on "From the Pre-Socratics to Newton,"
Anne J. Kox (Amsterdam) on "Lorentz and the Ether," and
Simon Saunders (Oxford) on "Dirac and the Negative Energy
Sea." May 9 was devoted to the general topic of "The Nature of
the Vacuum State," with Ian J.R. Aitchison (Oxford) speaking
on "Properties of the Vacuum State in Quantum Field Theory,"
Philip Stamp (British Columbia) speaking on "Structure of the
Ground State in Condensed Matter Physics," William G. Unruh
(British Columbia) speaking on "What is a Particle?" and Robert
M. Wald (Chicago) speaking on "The Non-Uniqueness of the
Vacuum." On May 10, this topic continued with Vijay
Balasubramanian (Pennsylvania) speaking on "The Nature of
the Vacuum in String Theory." The general topic then became
"Dark Energy and the Cosmological Constant," with Sean
Carroll (Chicago) speaking on "The Energy of the Vacuum
State" and, in the afternoon, John Earman (Pittsburgh) speaking
on the "History of the Cosmological Constant" and P. James E.
Peebles (Princeton) speaking on "The Dark Energy Problem."
The closing discussion on Sunday morning, May 11, was chaired
by Roger H. Stuewer (Minnesota).
Lee Gohlike has had a life-long interest in the history
and philosophy of physics, which he has furthered through
graduate studies at the Universities of Minnesota and Chicago.
To plan the annual symposia, he established an advisory board
consisting of Roger H. Stuewer (Minnesota), Chair, Jed Z.
Buchwald (Caltech), John Earman (Pittsburgh), Geoffrey
Hellman (Minnesota), Don Howard (Notre Dame), Alan E.
Shapiro (Minnesota), and Robert M. Wald (Chicago). Also
participating in the seventh annual Seven Pines Symposium
were Babak Ashrafi (MIT), Laurie M. Brown (Northwestern),
Michel Janssen (Minnesota), Jiirgen Renn (Berlin), Serge Rudaz
(Minnesota), Laura M. Ruetsche (Pittsburgh), and Henrik
Zinkernagel (Granada).
The eighth annual Seven Pines Symposium will be held

Documenting the Working Life of a Physicist:
Nobel Laureate Walter Kohn Gives Papers to UC Santa Barbara
(Reprint from UCSB, Santa Barbara, Calif.)

The papers of Walter Kohn, winner of the 1998 Nobel Prize in
Chemistry, will be preserved at the University of California,
Santa Barbara for use by students and scholars nationwide.
Kohn, a condensed matter theorist, donated his extensive
collection of notes, articles, manuscripts, research documents, and
correspondence to Special Collections in Davidson Library.
Biographers and historians of science will be drawn to the collection,
which documents the working life ofa physicist and includes materials
related to Kohn's opposition to UC's peacetime nuclear weapons
research and development and his work with organizations dedicated
to international peace and the advancement of human rights.
Kohn has made seminal contributions to the understanding
of the electronic structure of materials. He shared the Nobel Prize
for his development of density-functional theory, which has
revolutionized scientists' approach to the electronic structure of
atoms, molecules, and solid materials in physics, chemistry, and
materials science. With the advent of supercomputers, density
functional theory has become an essential tool for electronic
materials science.
Among his many accolades are the 1988 National Medal of
Science from the United States and the 1998 Niels Bohr gold medal
from the United Nations. The UCSB Libraries' Special Collections
Department plans to publish an on-line guide to the Kohn Papers.

The Dibner Institute for the History of Science and
Technology invites applications to its two fellowship
programs for the academic year 2004-2005: the Senior
Fellows program and the Postdoctoral Fellows program.
Some twenty-five Dibner Fellows are resident at the Institute
each year.

The Dibner Institute is an international center for advanced
research in the history of science and technology, established
in 1992. It draws on the resources of the Burndy Library, a
major collection of both primary and secondary material in
the history of science and technology, and enjoys the
participation in its programs of facultymembers and students
from the universities that make up the Dibner Institute's
consortium: the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the
host institution; Boston University; and Harvard University.

The Institute's primary mission is to support advanced
research in the history of science and technology, across a
wide variety of areas and a broad spectrum of topics and
methodologies. Several considerations enter into the
evaluation of applications. The Institute favors projects that
address events dating back thirty years or more; and, while
recognizing that overlap between the history of medicine
andthe history ofbiologymakes strict distinctions impossible,
the Institute generally does not supportprojects in the history
of clinical medicine. The most important consideration,
however, is the difference the proposed project promises to
make within the field ofthe history ofscience and technology.

Senior Fellows Program

Candidates for Senior Fellowships should have advanced
degrees in disciplines relevant to their research and show
evidence of substantial scholarly accomplishment and
professional experience. Senior Fellows may apply for a
second fellowship appointment five years after their first
successful application although, other things being equal,
preference is given to candidates who have not previously
been in residence as Fellows for a full year.

Scholars may apply to the Senior Fellows program for the
Fall (Term 1), the Spring (Term 2) or both. Term 1 extends
from August 1 through December 31, with full activities
beginning on September 1; Term 2 extends from January

1 through May 31, with full activities beginning the second
halfofJanuary. Atthe time ofapplication, Term 1 candidates
may request an arrival date in August. Term 2 candidates
may request an extension into June. The Institute prefers
that Senior Fellows apply for atwo-term, full-year residency,
if possible.

Postdoctoral Fellows Program

Fellowships are awardedto outstanding scholars of diverse
countries oforiginwho have receivedthe Ph.D. or equivalent
within the previous five years. Postdoctoral Fellowships
run for one year, from September 1 through August 15, and
may be extended for a second and final year atthe discretion
of the Dibner Institute. A second year is not guaranteed, but
reappointment s will be considered in conjunction with the
other applicants for that year.

Terms and Conditions

All Dibner Institute Fellows are expected to reside in the
Cambridge/Boston area during the terms of their grants, to
participate in the activities of the Dibner Institute
community, and to present their work once during their
fellowship appointments.

Fellowships provide office space, support facilities and full
privileges at the Burndy Library and at the libraries of
consortium universities.

Information about living expenses and the annual Dibner
stipend is provided with the application forms. The deadline
for receipt of applications for 2004-2005 is December 31,
2003. Fellowship recipients will be announced in March,
2004. Please send requests for further information to:

History of Science Grad Students have Best Showing with NSF in Six Years

This past April, the US National
Science Foundation announcedthe recipients
of its 2003 Graduate Research Fellowships.
Of the 900 recipients, five will be studying
the history of science. Not since 1998 have
that many history of science students won
Research Fellowships. Thirty-four history
of science students appliedthis year, "a large
increase over recent competitions."
The fellowship offers three years
of funding. Recipients are paid an annual

stipend, currently $27,500, while their
institutions receive a $10,500 annual "cost-
of-education allowance" in lieu of tuition.
Fellows also have access to $1,000 in travel
funds, if they plan to spend at least three
consecutive months abroad.
Applications are due in early
November of each year. Incoming graduate
students or current first-year students are
eligible to apply. Akeypart ofthe application

is the student's plan of research, which is
intended to demonstrate the applicant's
ability to formulate a research question and
a strategy for pursuing that inquiry;
fellowship recipients are not required to
pursue any particular line of research while
on tenure.
In the following interviews, two
2003 Fellows discuss the experiences that
led them to graduate school and the NSF.

Mara Mills, beginning her second
year at Harvard

You earned a bachelor's and a
master's degree from UC-Santa
i Cruz, and then taught high-school
biology before taking up further
graduate study. What prompted
you to go back to school?
I can attach my decision to pursue a
doctorate-and to interrogate the epistemology of the life sciences-
to one precise moment: In December of 1999, I was invited by the
Santa Cruz New Teacher Project to be part of a panel at the Annual
Meeting of the Board of Directors of the AAAS. As fortune would
have it, I found myself seated next to Stephen Jay Gould at the dinner
table afterwards, and he encouraged me to apply to Harvard's History
of Science Department, after learning of my background in English
and Biology.
What changes did you experience moving from California to
Nearly two years later, I think I'm still experiencing "productive
shock!" Both the ambient and more consequential aspects ofmy life/
work have changed immensely: Pacific Ocean sounds are replaced
by those oftraffic; my days are spent in archives rather than catching
newts or setting up lab stations; I've removed my lip piercing and
purchased a winter wardrobe; my training in constructivist education
and experimental biology is rapidly-and favorably-being
supplemented by an appreciation for genealogical history and
empirical philosophy.
What prompted you to apply for the NSF Fellowship?
I have two school-aged children, and, quite frankly, financial need
was the greatest motivator for my application.
What topics do you plan to explore while a fellow?
I'm interested in the history of"biological time" in the 19th and 20th
centuries. My plan of research centers on changing notions of death
and the life cycle, and the traffic of these discourses between
philosophy and the natural sciences. My questions range from the
pragmatic to the epistemic: Who were the early biologists examining
cell death and what were the material practices of their laboratories?
How have molecular innovations altered previous renditions of
human mortality? How does biological time differ from or cross
with historical time? How does the "miniaturizing" emphasis on the
cell, in most biological theories of death, translate into social
statements and practices?

Sameer Shah, incoming graduate
student at UCLA

While an undergraduate at MIT,
you worked as a teaching assistant
at a public high school in
Cambridge. Have your STS classes
changed the way you deal with
To be honest, not a terrible amount.
However, now in my students' precalculus class, they hear a bit of
history once in a while. I don't want my students to think that math
or science is done in an ivory tower. It makes it less approachable,
I think, when students don't realize science comes from real people.
I had that misconception for much too long myself.
Your research proposal discusses the relationship between
uncertainty and risk in the production of the atomic bomb.
What do you hope to learn?
I'm not sure I'm going to pursue this line of research. The most
important thing I would want to uncover in this study, if I do delve
into it, is how the perception of risk informs action. Because more
important than cltll danger" itself, I would hope to claim, is the
"perception of danger" (or lack of danger).
In your application, you wrote that you first became interested
in the practices of science when you read Surely You're Joking,
MrFeynman! Your senior thesis dealt with apocalyptic concerns
about accidentally creating black holes at Brookhaven National
Labs. What do you say to people who think science is boring?
It doesn't solve any problems to show people a video of an atomic
bomb explosion or some beautiful fractal and say "How can you
look at this and still say science is boring?" I think it is when people
gain an understanding of science that they start seeing science as an
exciting pursuit. For that you need motivated teachers. I have this
problem every time I enter my classroom at the high school that I
teach at. I have a large portion of students who think that mathematics
is boring-but I think if it is taught as a venture of discovery rather
than a set of ad hoc rules, the students appreciate it. I'm pretty sure
the same applies in many of the sciences.

Scientific Instrument Collections in the University (SICU), an
International Symposium at Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH. 24-
27 June 2004. Although hundreds of universities and colleges have
preserved historic scientific apparatus, many of these collections
remain less than fully accessible and may even be virtually unknown
outside of (and within) their home institutions. The purpose of SICU
is to stimulate creative thinking about potential futures for these
collections and to provide a forum to discuss practical problems
related to their management and use. In addition to several invited
panels and a keynote address, SICU will feature contributed papers
and posters. Some travel support may be available. Please submit
proposals for papers or posters by 15 September 2003 to
sicu@mac.dartmouth.edu. For additional information on SICU and
this call for papers, see www.dartmouth.edu/-sicu or contact

displacement in the course of exploration, migration, trade, and
* The circulation of knowledge among scientific disciplines and
research fields, andbetween science and other cultural domains.
* The circulation of scientific knowledge between expert
practitioners and public audiences.
* The formation of scientific knowledge by translation between
different languages, media, and forms of publication.
* The part played in the creation of scientific knowledge by
circulating texts, metaphors, images, objects, and artifacts.
This announcement constitutes a call for papers. The meeting
will be organized into sessions of three or four papers, with a
