Geological Society of America History and Philosophy of Geology Division Newsletter Volume 37, No. 1 March 2013

Pardee Time at GSA! The History and Philosophy of Geology division received notification that one of the division’s co‐sponsored Pardee session proposals has been accepted for the 2013 GSA Annual Meeting & Exposition. Scheduled for MONDAY morning, October 28, 2013, In the Footsteps of Geology Giants will provide a retrospective on important past “geology giants” who dramatically impacted our science. This Pardee Session will overview topical geosciences areas by focusing on renowned individuals who directed the historic development of new methods or perspectives. Conveners Marjorie Chan (University of Utah), Renee Clary (Mississippi State University) and Ken Aalto (Humboldt State University) invite proposals on notable North American geoscientists (no longer living) who promoted groundbreaking ideas that historically changed the discipline and directed its future progression. Please consider contributing to this important session, which directly impacts the visibility of our division’s mission and research. If you have questions, please contact Marjorie Chan ([email protected]) Renee Clary ([email protected]), or Ken Aalto ([email protected]). Student Travel Award Deadline Moved At it’s annual business meeting this year, the Division board decided to move the deadline for applications for the annual student award to June 30. This change is intended to encourage more applications from undergraduate students working on summer research projects. The History and Philosophy of Geology Division is soliciting proposals for a student award for the amount of $1000 for a paper to be given at the national GSA meeting. This award, established in 2004, is made possible by a bequest from the estate of Mary C. Rabbitt. Consideration will be given to both undergraduate and graduate students. While both oral and poster presentations are acceptable, oral presentations are preferred. Faculty advisors may be listed as second author, but not as the lead author of the paper. The proposed paper may be: (1) A paper in the history or philosophy of geology; or (2) A literature review of ideas for a technical work or thesis/dissertation; or (3) Some

imaginative aspect of the history or philosophy of geology we have not thought of before. The award is open to all students regardless of discipline, provided the proposed paper is related to the history or philosophy of a geological idea/person/etc. After the applications have been received and reviewed by the Awards Committee, the winner will be notified. The winner should then register for the GSA Annual Meeting and present his or her paper at the History and Philosophy of Geology Division disciplinary session. A ticket to the History and Philosophy of Geology luncheon will be provided. The $1000 award will be presented at the time the paper is presented, and the student will also be recognized at the annual luncheon. If there are multiple authors, the cash award will be presented to the senior author and further distribution is up to that person. Application forms and guidelines can be found on our website www.gsahist.org. Questions and completed applications should be sent to Division Secretary Dave Goldsmith at [email protected] The Division is on Facebook Facebook users can now keep track of divisional goings‐on through our new group page. We hope that this will become a place where division members can share ideas, keep in touch and post announcements about items of interest. Our page is located at www.facebook.com/HiPhiGeo. Make Nominations for 2013 Officers Do you know someone who would make a great division officer? Nominations are open now. Please send your suggestions to the following coordinators. Nominations for candidates for the Division’s Chair Rotation should be sent to Gary Rosenberg at [email protected] Name the Newsletter Several people suggested new names for the Division Newsletter. The suggested new titles are: “HiPhiGeo” “The Hi Phi Record” “GSA Yesterday” “HPG News” Any of these titles would then be followed by the subtitle “The Newsletter of the Geological Society of America History and Philosophy of Geology Division.” If you have a preference about the new title, please send an email with your choice to Division secretary Dave Goldsmith at [email protected] The new title will make its debut in the June issue.
