The Making of the Humanities VII

University of Amsterdam, CREA, November 15 - 17, 2018

Deadline: Jun 1, 2018

The Making of the Humanities’ conference returns to Amsterdam! This is the place where the conference series started in 2008, 10 years ago. The University of Amsterdam will host the 7th Making of the Humanities conference at its CREA facilities, from 15 till 17 November 2018.

The MoH conferences are organized by the Society for the History of the Humanities and bring together scholars and historians interested in the global history of the humanities disciplines, including art history, historiography, linguistics, literary studies, media studies, musicology, and philology, tracing these fields from their earliest developments to the modern day.

We welcome panels and papers on any period or region. We are especially interested in work that compares scholarly practices across civilizations and disciplines.

Please note that the Making of the Humanities conferences are not concerned with the history of art, the history of music or the history of literature, and so on, but instead with the history of art history, the history of musicology, the history of literary studies, etc.
