This event welcomes current ICHO members and anyone interested in ocean history to gather to find out about ICHO, meet each other, and learn about each others’ work. The event will begin with a short presentation introducing ICHO, followed by two 15-minute break out groups of 4-5 people (think group speed dating) to meet and talk about their work, and ending with the group coming back together for a final discussion, perhaps aimed at possible follow-on events.
ICHO is a global body devoted to linking scholars, writers and teachers interested in the history of marine sciences, broadly defined.
It is part of the Division of the History of Science, Technology and Medicine, which is part of the International Union of the History and Philosophy of Science, which in turn is part of the International Council of Scientific Unions.
ICHO’s website is at: https://oceansciencehistory.com/
