Diplomatic Studies of Science: The Interplay of Science, Technology and
International Affairs After the Second World War

Monday, November 8th, 2021 and Tuesday November 9th, 2021
9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Maison de la Chimie, 28 Rue Saint-Dominique,
75007 Paris

The Gordon Cain Conference 2021

( focuses on the
fascinating interplay of science, technology and international affairs
after the Second World War. By doing so it marks the emergence of
Diplomatic Studies of Science as a field at the intersection of Science
and Technology Studies, History of Science, Diplomatic History, and
International Politics. The Beckman Center for the History of Chemistry
at the Science History Institute and the Gordon Cain Conference Fellow,
Maria Rentetzi, invite contributions that explore the ways science and
diplomacy have been co-produced throughout the second half of the 20^th
century reaching the present.

Call for Abstracts

To submit a paper to the 2021 Cain Conference, please send a 250-word
abstract and a two-page CV to the following email address:

The deadline for submissions is June 13, 2021. Decisions will be made

for publication in an edited volume.

Conference Organizer: Maria Rentetzi

Maria Rentetzi is the chair for science, technology and gender studies
in the Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences and Theology at the
Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen Nuremberg, Germany. She has
been trained as a physicist and as a historian of science and
technology. Her research focuses on two intertwined areas of inquiry:
the investigation of the politically and historically situated character
of technoscience and the critical examination of gender as a major
analytic category in technoscientific endeavors. As part of her ERC
Consolidator Grant project Rentetzi currently leads the development of
what she calls “The Diplomatic Studies of Science.” This is a highly
interdisciplinary field of research at the intersection of science and
technology studies, history of science, diplomatic history, political
sciences, and international affairs. Before joining FAU, she was a guest
professor at the Technische Universität Berlin and a Professor for
History and Sociology of Science and Technology at the National
Technical University of Athens.
