  1. Karen Hunger Parshall (2015). Increasing the Utility of the Society”: The Colloquium Lectures of the American Mathematical Society. Philosophia Scientiæ 19-2:153-169.
    Cette étude retrace l’évolution de la série de « Colloquium lectures » de l’American Mathematical Society dès sa création en 1896 jusqu’au début de la deuxième guerre mondiale. Ces cours constituent une importante innovation dans l’échange mathématique aux États-Unis. Ils ont servi à la fois à porter la communication mathématique à un haut niveau et à organiser plus efficacement une communauté nationale de mathématiciens.

  2. Karen Hunger Parshall (2006). Eliakim Hastings Moore and the Founding of a Mathematical Community in America, 1892–1902. Annals of Science 41 (4):313-333.
    In 1892, Eliakim Hastings Moore accepted the task of building a mathematics department at the University of Chicago. Working in close conjuction with the other original department members, Oskar Bolza and Heinrich Maschke, Moore established a stimulating mathematical environment not only at the University of Chicago, but also in the Midwest region and in the United States in general. In 1893, he helped organize an international congress of mathematicians. He followed this in 1896 with the organization of the Midwest Section (...)

  3. Allen G. Debus, Paul Harold Theerman & Karen Hunger Parshall (eds.) (1997). Experiencing Nature: Proceedings of a Conference in Honor of Allen G. Debus. Kluwer Academic Publishers.
    This volume, honoring the renowned historian of science, Allen G Debus, explores ideas of science - `experiences of nature' - from within a historiographical tradition that Debus has done much to define. As his work shows, the sciences do not develop exclusively as a result of a progressive and inexorable logic of discovery. A wide variety of extra-scientific factors, deriving from changing intellectual contexts and differing social millieus, play crucial roles in the overall development of scientific thought. These essays represent (...)
