The second edition of the Neuchâtel Seminar in History of Science and Technology – entitled Scientific Objects: Then and Now – aims to reflect on scientific objects and the problems raised by their study by working on two aspects in particular. On the one hand, the seminar will host retrospective analyses of the evolution of object studies in the fields of history, philosophy and sociology of science, which have been produced since the so-called ‘material turn’ of the 1980s.
On the other hand, the seminar will explore the open perspectives for future research on scientific objects, by hosting presentations of new studies of scientific objects, accompanied by methodological reflections.
