Feminist critics argue that when Robert Boyle proposed his ideal scientific spectator, the 'modest witness,' he set an exclusionary standard, barring women from scientific production. This panel explores femininity and the female body in the making of scientific knowledge from the Scientific Revolution to the early 1800s. Did women employ discrete processes or ideologies, devise experiments, and construct evidence in ways that were fundamentally distinct from the masculine university model? Broadly, how did gender affect their scientific acts?

Call for Papers:
Cultural Relations Quarterly Review

Topic: (Volume I. Issue 3.) International law

A predictable and secure international law system is an essential basis of stable international relations. Nevertheless, current events and new individual cases make jurists reinterpret these rules, and if necessary, create new ones that correspond to actual demands. Therefore, we encourage contributors to submit their comprehensive and original works on this constantly actual and relevant topic, focusing on the current situation and changes of international law.

The First World War was a truly momentous event. The rest of the 20th century would be shaped by this war and its consequence, the Second World War. The years 1914-1918 impacted decisively not only on the politics of anti-colonial resistance but also on the arts; in fact, the nascent movement of modernism gained considerable impetus because of the war. The First World War produced an unprecedented magnitude of devastation that left in its trail a frenetic search for new registers necessitated by the collapse of great truths. The Age of Empire had given way to automation, experimentation, and new schemas of drift and defamiliarization.
