The European Social Science History Conference (ESSHC) is organized by the International Institute of Social History (IISH) in co-operation with the University of Gothenburg Sweden, and takes place from 12 - 15 April 2023.
The conference welcomes papers and sessions on any historical topic and any historical period. It is organized in 27 thematic networks. The deadline for paper and session proposals is 15 April 2022.
The aim of the ESSHC is 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. PhD students are invited to enter their paper for the Prof. Jan Lucassen Award for best paper by a PhD student in the conference programme.
