Call for Papers ‘The Making of the Humanities V’, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, 5-7 October 2016
Deadline: April 30, 2016
The Fifth Making of the Humanities (MoH) conference brings together scholars interested in the history of the humanities disciplines, including archaeology, art history, historiography, linguistics, literary studies, musicology, philology, and media studies, tracing these fields from their earliest developments to the modern day.
We welcome paper and panel submissions on any period or region. We are especially interested in work that transcends the history of specific humanities disciplines by comparing scholarly practices across disciplines and civilizations.
Abstracts of single papers (25 minutes including discussion) should be in Word format and contain the name of the speaker, full contact
address (including email address), the title and a summary of the paper of maximally 250 words. Abstracts should be sent (in Word) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for abstracts: 30 April 2016.
Notification of acceptance: End of June 2016
