Canada’s Future as an Innovative Society
University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ont.
Newton Project Canada
Lead: Stephen Snobelen, University of Kings College, Halifax, NS
The Canadian arm of the Newton Project (based in the United Kingdom) supports its international counterpart by providing a centre of operations for Canadian-based transcription work on Newton’s unpublished manuscripts, as well as to seek funding for both entities.
Cosmopolitanism and the Local in Science and Nature
Lead: Gordon McOuat, University of Kings College, Halifax, NS
CosmoLocal.org is a three year project that aims to establish a research network on “Cosmopolitanism” in science. It closely examines the actual types of negotiations that go into the making of science and its culture within an increasingly globalized landscape.
The John Tyndall Correspondence Project
Andrew W. Mellon Grant
Lead: Bernie Lightman, Institute for Science & Technology Studies, York University
We will publish a one-volume calendar of the correspondence of the Victorian physicist John Tyndall (1820-1893) and to issue his collected correspondence, both in print (an expected ten volumes) and, eventually, in an accessible, searchable, on-line format. We also hope to galvanize investigation of themes related to Tyndall’s work which played fundamental roles in the development of modern science.
The Mechanization of Philosophy between 1300-1700
Rotman Institute of Philosophy, Western University
Recent research has shown that the development of mechanical philosophy and the origin of modern science in the seventeenth century is much indebted to the late Aristotelian philosophers of the sixteenth century. The research will step further back in history and aims to show the indebtedness of mechanical philosophy to developments initiated by William Ockham (c. 1287-1347) and his influential successor John Buridan (c. 1300-1358).
Open Doors/Closed Ranks: Locating Mental Health After the Asylum
History of Madness in Canada Website Collective
After the Asylum tells the story of the paradigm shift in twentieth-century mental health provision from overcrowded aging provincial facilities to a myriad of community settings – the group home, the drop-in, the clinic, and the street. A series of creative and compelling exhibits, crafted by community and academic researchers, gives voice to the mental health service users, practitioners, policy-makers and bureaucrats whose lives intersected with this complex and often troubled history.
