Scientiae is very pleased to announce its first Fall conference. This event will take place at, and with support of Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island (US), on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 October 2024. For this conference we have chosen the theme “The Global History of Knowledge” with a specific, but not exclusive, focus on the Americas and the Atlantic in the period 1450–1750. Historians of science, philosophers, literary scholars, art historians, and many other seemingly distant experts are encouraged to reflect together on the complexities of the early modern period. We are proud to announce a keynote address by Pablo F. Gómez (University of Wisconsin-Madison).

We are delighted to accept proposals for:

-Individual, 20-minute papers: Please submit a descriptive title, 200-word abstract, and one-page CV.
-Complete panels: Same as above for each paper, plus 200-word rationale for the panel. Maximum four presenters, including chair (and/or respondent).
-Workshops or seminars: One-page CV for each session leader, plus 200-word plan explaining the topic’s suitability, and its techniques or resources.

Please submit your proposal online before midnight of May 15th, 2024, at

Inquiries can be addressed to: Matthijs Jonker,

Providence has a good airport very nearby and is well-connected by train to New York City and Boston. We are looking forward to welcome you in Providence in October!
