In November I travelled to Toronto for the annual History of Science Society conference where I chaired a session on Science Education in the United States.

My book chapter “To Any Degree”: Jesuit Medical Schools in Nineteenth-Century America came out in August in Crossings and Dwellings: Restored Jesuits, Women Religious, American Experience, 1814-2014, volume 11 in the Jesuit Studies series from Brill edited by Kyle B. Roberts and Stephen R. Schloesser, S.J., about the history of the restored Jesuits in America.

In July I enjoyed my first visit to Brazil at the 25th International Congress of History of Science and Technology held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where I served as the secretary to the conference program chair along with giving a talk to the Scientific Instrument Commission group titled The ‘personal’ equations of American astronomer Joel Stebbins. While in Brazil, I also participated in the 27th International Conference on the History of Cartography held in Belo Horizonte.

I attended the SIGCIS-organized conference Command Lines: Software, Power, and Performance in March at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.
