Call for Papers: Sciences of Nonmodernity, Now

What insights and critical challenges does 'nonmodernity' bring to the humanistic study of science today? The hope is for a conversation among scholars working variously on "nonmodern" scientific traditions, to reflect on the salience of their work to the present.
