We would like to invite you to participate in a series of panels and roundtables bringing together historians of Iberian and colonial Latin American science to discuss recent historiographical developments in the field and new research, as well as to explore the field’s future direction. Prof. Maria M. Portuondo and Prof. Gabriel Paquette serve as the sub-committee on history of science of the ASPHS program committee and will assist the coordinating panels. We ask that you please contact us directly indicating your interest in participating. Since the deadline for all final panel and roundtable submissions is 1 October 2014, we ask that you communicate with the sub-committee well in advance of this date.  Travel  subventions  will be offered to a limited number of accepted participants and will be awarded based on the timely submission and quality of the paper/panel proposals.
