From July 18th to the 22nd, 2012, Cheiron: The International Society for the History of the Social and Behavioral Sciences (http://people.stu.ca/~cheiron/main/) and the European Society for the History of the Human Sciences (http://psychology.dur.ac.uk/eshhs/) will be holding a joint meeting in Montreal, Canada.
Each of these organizations holds an independent, annual meeting which draws upon scholars from psychology, history, anthropology, sociology, and philosophy among other disciplines. To get a better sense of the scope and mission of these organizations, I invite you to go to their websites. In 2007, they met for the first time as a joint meeting in Dublin. We are looking to replicate and build on the success of the Dublin meeting which offered a unique opportunity for scholars interested in the social and human sciences from around the world to interact. The Montreal meeting will be held at Dawson College. Andrea Tone, the Canada Research Chair in the Social History of Medicine at McGill University, has agreed to give the keynote address.
As program co-chair, I warmly invite members of the Iberoamerican Network of Researchers in the History of Psychology to submit papers, posters, or symposia to the conference. I would be delighted to see contributions on Iberoamerican topics. If anyone is interested in organizing a thematic symposium with members of Cheiron or ESHHS, please let me know and I will do my best to facilitate contact. To read more...
