Conference notice

This is a biennial conference I like a lot, its first visit to the UK - I've been to it when it was in Amsterdam (several times), the Hague, Berlin and Ghent (missed it the year it was in Lisbon). I mostly participate in the History of Sexuality network  (of which I am no longer, to my great relief, co-chair as I was for at least two iterations of the conference). But there are many other fascinating networks - by having these strands by theme and common interests, which are focused and quite intense, it combines the virtues of a small focused conference with the benefits of scale of a large one. It's also a very good place to connect with colleagues from all over Europe.

European Social Science History Conference

The ESSHC 2012 will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, UK
From Wednesday 11 April up to and including Saturday 14 April 2012.

The conference
ESSHC logo The ESSHC aims at bringing together scholars interested in explaining historical phenomena using the methods of the social sciences. The conference is characterized by a lively exchange in many small groups, rather than by formal plenary sessions. The conference is organized in a large number of networks which cover a variety of topics. It welcomes papers and sessions on any topic and any historical period.
Read more about the ESSHC and past conferences. Go to ESSHC 2010 for more information on the 2010 conference that took place in April in Ghent, Belgium.
The European Social Science History Conference is organized by the International Institute of Social History (IISH), an institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts & Sciences. Information on the IISH is available from its website at
