Thank you.
Kathy Olesko, Editor, Osiris


The Editorial Board of Osiris, a research journal devoted to
the history of science and its cultural influences, solicits
proposals for Volume 24, to appear in 2009. Osiris is a
journal of the History of Science Society (USA) published by
University of Chicago Press. The Osiris Editorial Board will
consider proposals for Volume 24 at the HSS annual meeting in
November 2005.

Proposals for broad themes that integrate issues in the history
of science into topics of "mainstream" history are especially
encouraged, as are contributors from the historical discipline
at large. The Board is also very interested in proposals which
assess the "state of the field" in various areas of the history
of science.

Recent volumes include Science and Civil Society (2002), Science
and the City (2003), Landscapes of Exposure (2004), and Politics
and Science in Wartime (to appear July 2005).

Prospective guest editors should submit the following materials
for consideration:

(1) a proposal of approximately 2000 words describing topic and
its relationship to the literature to date including, where
appropriate, the literature in mainstream history;
(2) a list of 12-15 contributors with the theme, topic, or title
of contribution; and
(3) publication c.v. of guest editor(s).

Guest editors and their contributors should be prepared to meet
to the Osiris publication schedule. Guest editors must therefore
choose contributors who are able to submit their essays by
September 2007. Volume 24 (2009) goes to press--after refereeing,
author's revisions, and copy editing--in the fall of 2008.

Proposals are reviewed by the Osiris Editorial Board. Announcement
of the next volume of Osiris will be made no later than January 2006.

Proposals and all supporting materials should be sent in hard or
electronic copy by October 15, 2005 to:


Kathryn M. Olesko, Osiris Editor
