"Know a grad student who's outside of or new to the field of History and Philosophy of Science or Science and Technology Studies and wants to learn more? Applications from students across Canada and across humanities and social science disciplines are invited for a special five-day summer school – no fees! (In case you missed it… no fees!) Situating Science Summer School 2014: Science in Human Contexts will provide advanced training in the fields of History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) and Science and Technology Studies (STS) in a picturesque retreat near Kingston, Ontario. The seminar is an excellent opportunity for graduate students interested in learning about general issues and key areas in these fields. The event is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC)-funded Situating Science Strategic Knowledge Cluster, a national network connecting and promoting the humanities and social studies of science and technology. The week will address each of the four themes of the Situating Science Cluster: historical epistemology and ontology; material culture and scientific/technological practices; scientific communication and its publics; and geography and sites of knowing. For further details about all the programming and steps to apply before the Monday, April 14, 2014 deadline, see here."
