4th Latin American Conference of the International History, Philosophy and Science Teaching Group (IHPST-LA)
History, philosophy, sociology and science teaching in Latin America: reflecting on the challenges and achievements of the last decades
September 3 to 5, 2018
Federal University of ABC, UFABC
Santo André, Brazil
We are pleased to announce that, from September 3 to 5, 2018, it will take place at Santo Andre campus of the Federal University of ABC (UFABC) the 4th Latin American Conference of the International History, Philosophy and Science Teaching Group (IHPST-LA).
After 8 years from the 1st Latin American Conference, in Maresias (SP), and 3 years from the 13th Biennial Conference of the IHPST, in Rio de Janeiro (RJ), Brazil will host again a group meeting. In three days of intense discussion, we seek to promote a wide debate among historians, educators, teachers and others on the relation between history, philosophy, sociology and science teaching.
In the last three decades, there has been a growing contribution from Latin American researchers on the possibilities, challenges and perspectives of the relation between these four areas. Hence, we have occupied an important place in the main channels of discussions, either journals or meetings, introducing and reflecting on specific problems of our continent and, thus, promoting a productive integration between the most diverse ways of thinking.
We believe that the next IHPST-LA can be a moment of reflection on what we have accomplished and what we can still achieve. Therefore, the theme of this 4th conference is: History, philosophy, sociology and science teaching in Latin America: reflecting on the challenges and achievements of the last decades. We encourage the submission of proposals that address this theme, although the conference is open to all topics that lie within the scope of the IHPST group.
There will be three kinds of submission of proposal: oral communication, poster and thematic symposia.
For the oral communications and posters, participants should submit an abstract with no more than 200 words. The oral communications should be presented within 20 minutes, with 10 more minutes for questions and comments. The posters will be presented at a special session, within 1 hour and 30 minutes, in the second day of the conference.
The thematic symposia must be organized by, at least, two researchers from different institutions. The participants must belong to two or more different institutions. The organizers must submit the abstracts of all the proposed communications, with no more than 200 words each. The organizers can submit as many communications as they wish within a thematic symposium, however, be aware that we will have only two sessions for the thematic symposia, with 1 hour and 30 minutes each. No symposium presentation will be allowed during other sessions of the conference.
Each participant must be the first author (and presenter) of only one proposal, either an oral communication, poster or within a thematic symposium. Therefore, the abstracts will only be included in the conference program after the registration of the first author. In addition, each participant can be co-author of two other papers. Each communication can be authored by a maximum of three people.
Proposals may be submitted in Portuguese, Spanish or English.
Here are the important dates of the conference:
Submission of proposals (all categories): from February 19 to March 30
Notification of acceptance: from May 1
Early registration deadline: June 3
Registration deadline: July 15
Conference: September 3 to 5
