48th Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Biology & Informatics Training Workshop

The 48th annual Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Biology took place this weekend, April 26 & 27, at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The meeting was attended by 42 scholars, ranging from graduate students to senior historians and philosophers of science, and was organized by a committee from the ASU Center for Biology and Society (Kate MacCord, Lijing Jiang, Jane Maienschein, and Erick Peirson).

The event opened with a Friday-afternoon session on informatics and the digital history and philosophy of science, organized in collaboration with the MBL-WHOI Library. This was the official launch of the new Embryo Project Encyclopedia and MBL History websites, built around the new Digital HPS Community Repository.
