Materials and Chemistry from Bench to Brand and Back

22–28 July 2013, Manchester, UK

The 24th International Congress of History of Science, Technology and Medicine will be held 22–28 July 2013, in Manchester, the chief city of Northwest England, and the original “shock city” of the Industrial Revolution. The congress is the largest event in the field, and takes place every four years. Recent meetings have been held in Mexico City (2001), Beijing (2005), and Budapest (2009). Congress facilities will be provided by The University of Manchester, with tours and displays on local scientific, technological, and medical heritage coordinated by members of the University’s Centre for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine.

A symposium entitled “Materials and Chemistry from Bench to Brand and Back” is being organized by the Commission for the History of Modern Chemistry. (a Commission of the International Union of History and Philosophy of Science/Division of History of Science and Technology). The symposium aims to investigate itineraries of materials from bench research to consumer brands, as they spread through society and the natural environment, and the itinerary back, with a focus on the co-construction of materials and chemistry through specific case studies. Potential topics of interest are synthetic polymers, nanotechnologies, metallurgy, electronics, new and old materials like plastics or ceramics, as well drugs, fertilizers, and biomaterials.

Scholars interested in contributing to this symposium should contact one of the symposium organizers listed below.
