34th Annual Meeting of the European Society for the History of the Human Sciences (ESHHS)
Call for Abstracts
Université d’Angers, France,
July 7th-10th, 2015
The European Society for the History of Human Sciences (ESHHS) invites submissions to its annual conference to be held at University of Angers, France, from July 7th-10th, 2015.
Papers, posters, symposia, or workshops may deal with any aspect of the history of the human, behavioral, or social sciences and/or with related historiographic and methodological issues. This year’s conference will devote particular interest to topics related to disciplinary boundaries and relationships between disciplines (for example, among those of the humanities, health and environmental sciences), issues related to history and translation, as well as topics relating to the diffusion and reception of the human sciences and the political history of the human sciences. We also continue to welcome contributions outside of these areas.
