21-23 October 2010, The Making of the Humanities II: Second International Conference on the History of the Humanities

Date: 21-23 October 2010
Location: Doelenzaal, Singel 425, Amsterdam
Deadline: 15 June 2010

This is the second of a biennially organized conference that brings together scholars and historians of humanities disciplines to draw the outlines for a comparative history of the humanities. Although there exist histories of single humanities disciplines, a comparative history would satisfy a long-felt need, and fill a conspicuous gap in intellectual history.

The first highly successful conference, held in 2008, discussed the early modern period. The theme of this year's meeting is From Early Modern to Modern Disciplines, focusing on the period 1600-1900. Topics include all aspects of the history of philology, linguistics, rhetoric, musicology, literary theory, historiography, art history, archeology and other humanities disciplines, with an emphasis on their interrelations.

Registration deadline: 30 september. For more information, see the conference website at http://www.illc.uva.nl/MakingHumanities/2010/.

The Programme Committee cordially invites all researchers to submit their papers for presentation. Please send an abstract of maximally 400 words to: . Deadline for abstract submissions: 15 June 2010
