Session at ESHS2022 organized by Matthias Heymann and Dania Achermann: "Epistemology and Politics in Climate Science"
Tenth Conference of the European Society for the History of Science (ESHS), Brussels, 7-10 September 2022
The Tenth Conference of the European Society for the History of Science (ESHS) will take place in Brussels (Belgium), from 7 to 10 September 2022. The theme will be Science Policy and the Politics of Science. The venue in and of itself supports the theme of the conference. Since the foundation of the Royal Academy of Science, Letters, and Fine Arts of Belgium in 1772, Brussels has been the home and venue of significant scientific institutions, from the Solvay Conferences in Physics and Chemistry to the European Commission and Research Council, which have shaped the present state of the sciences as well as their impact on our world. From a historiographical perspective, this will be an opportunity to showcase new histories of scientific institutions and modes of knowledge, networks, and nodes.
