CALL FOR PAPERS:
European Social Science History Conference
27 February through 1 March 2008
The biennial European Social Science History Conference is an excellent opportunity to develop contacts between historians working in different fields of historical research and to explore interdisciplinary work. In Berlin (2004) and Amsterdam (2006), historians specializing in technological areas had the opportunity to interact with other specialists from 28 thematic fields. Co-organized sessions with the childhood, urban, and economics networks were particularly successful.
For the 2008 conference in Lisbon, we invite papers or sessions on the interactions of technology with culture, politics, economics and society -- during all time periods. Especially welcome are complete session proposals that connect technological themes with other historical sub-disciplines, e.g., those recognized as ‘networks’ by the ESSHC: <http://www.iisg.nl/esshc/networks.php>.
ALL proposals for papers and sessions must be “preregistered” by **April 1, 2007** at <http://www2.iisg.nl/esshc/register.asp >. As chairs of the technology network, we’d be happy to discuss ideas for sessions with you.
