H-Pietism promotes the academic study of Pietism, broadly defined. We welcome all interested scholars studying Pietism as an early modern religious movement in Europe (particularly Germany) and North America, as well as the many churches and religious communities, worldwide, which are descended from the Pietist and evangelical movements of the eighteenth century.

CfP: CEHS sponsorship of 2017 AHA Sessions

As an affiliate society of the American Historical Association, the Central European History Society (CEHS) sponsors a variety of panels on German, Habsburg, and Central European History at the AHA’s Annual Meeting (in Denver, 5-8 January 2017).  

 

CEHS both solo-sponsors and co-sponsors panels.

Co-sponsorship is for those panels that have already been accepted by the AHA Program Committee.

Solo-sponsorship is for panels that have not been accepted by the AHA — these panels can be placed on the program by CEHS.
