On 2 and 3 February a small group of (mostly) manuscript researchers convened in Maastricht to share papers on a subject which has already been the topic of many conferences: digital tools for manuscript scholars. Nevertheless, some really interesting and inspiring contributions were on the program. Overall, what struck me is that multiple speakers were not afraid to characterize their endeavours to ‘do something digital’ with their data had actually failed, mostly because they underestimated the step between presenting the data in a digital format and making them understandable and usable for colleagues (Peter Stokes).

Proposal and call for papers: “Technology, natural resources and crises in the past and present of Europe and beyond” (Various venues; deadline 11 February 2017)
There are many examples in history where the overexploitation of resources led to depletion and pollution and caused societal, environmental and technological crises. The aim of this project is to examine connections between resources, crises and technology in Europe or in European engagements beyond Europe in the 16th to 21st centuries. Particular attention will be paid to the circulation of technologies, knowledge and ideas within Europe and from or to Europe, which are related to resource crises. This includes circulation processes within individual countries (e.g., between centers and periphery), in between European countries (e.g. East-West and North-South) and between Europe and other continents (e.g. with European colonies). With this approach we propose to discuss the crossroads between the history of technology, environmental history, and the history of exploitation of natural resources in a longue-durée perspective with the help of individual case studies.

Call for Contributions: A science of what and for whom? Historical understandings and perspectives of agricultural science (Leuven, 31 January 2017)
It is striking how the agricultural sciences have undergone a series of conceptual and practical changes between the early modern period and the present.

The History of Science PhD-Conference at De Glind is the successor of the biennial conferences at Rolduc. Two years ago, Hans Schouwenburg noticed a remarkable diversity of topics in his report of the Rolduc gathering. A great variety again characterized this year’s meeting. This was clearly reflected in the different backgrounds of the participants.
Call for Applications: TransPositions Summer School 2017: “Sensible Objects, Material Engagement, Skilled Expertise” (Zeist, 21-25 August; Deadline 22 February 2017)
Applications are requested for the TransPositions Summer School 2017: Sensible Objects, Material Engagement, Skilled Expertise, to be held from Monday 21 August through Friday 25 August 2017 in the Woudschoten Hotel & Conference Centre near Utrecht, The Netherlands.
This edition of the TransPositions Summer School focusses on material culture and the senses. How can we investigate sensory experiences of past material cultures or cultures that are not our own? And how can we reconstruct in our studies the experiential richness of ephemera and material practices “lost in transmission” or only preserved in textual sources? The summer school approaches these questions across different disciplines including art history, archaeology, anthropology, conservation, musicology, performance and media studies, cognitive science, and religion- and science studies.
