hoh.2018.3.issue-2.cover

Issue 3.2. of History of Humanities has recently been published. It is yet another rich issue containing 6 articles on a variety of topics such as Vico’s philology, 19th century French historiography, criticism in the modern humanities, epistemic virtues and national stereotypes, the marginalization of the humanities in Sweden and an exciting bibliometric analysis of 20th century Venetian historiography. Next to this there are over 20 book reviews. This sharp increase in number of reviews can be taken as a marker of extensive productivity in the field of the history of humanities. Enjoy!

 

Short Conference Report MOH7 and Pictures!

The 7th The Making of the Humanities conference returned to Amsterdam from 15-17 November 2018. Since the conference has turned into an annual event in 2016 it has continued to grow. This year a record number of 144 presentations was accepted for presentation. A well-balanced programme and the high quality of contributions made for a very stimulating conference. We thank all participants for their contributions!

For the third time a prize of 500 Euro was awarded for the best Graduate Student paper. Out of 39 graduate papers Josephine Musil-Gutsch (Ludwig Maximilians University Munich) was selected as the winner for her paper “Material Analysis of Archaeological Artifacts. Cooperation between the Sciences and the Humanities (1880-1930)”. The jury report lauded this research for its excellents materials, fantastic choice of topic and brave and clever presentation.

We encourage all participants to submit their papers, presented at the conference, to our journal History of Humanities. Looking forward to 2019 we are happy to announce that The Making of Humanities VIII conference is planned to take place in Cape Town (South-Africa). The Call for Papers will be posted soon. We hope too see you all there again!
