ESHHS 2019, BUDAPEST
Call for abstracts
The European Society for the History of the Human Sciences (ESHHS) invites submissions to its conference to be held from July 4 to July 6, 2019. The conference is hosted by the Department of Cognitive Science, Central European University, Budapest, Hungary, and organized in collaboration with the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
Oral presentations, posters, sessions or workshops may deal with any aspect of the history of the human, behavioural and social sciences or with related historiographic and methodological issues (including those related to digital history).
This year we plan two featured topics for the conference : relations between the history of psychoanalysis and social and cultural history at large, and the genesis of modern infancy research, the latter being one of the specialties of the hosting department at CEU.
