Seeking Panelists: Queer Science @ History of Science Society Meeting, November 1-4, Seattle

Hi all,

I'm organizing a proposal for a panel on the topic Queer Science for this year's History of Science Society meeting (November 1-4, Seattle), and looking for an additional 1-2 panelists (also open to one of those being a commentator). Queer Science, broadly imagined, might include queer methods of doing history of science and/or STS, queer or anti-queer uses of science (intentional not), or science involving queer actors, as well as any other definitions you might find relevant.
