New ESF Report available: “Asian Studies in the Humanities: Visions for the Future”

The recently published ESF report is the outcome of the second Humanities Spring meeting of 2009 “Young researchers Forum: New perspectives for Asian Studies in the Humanities” which was organised under the leadership of the Standing Committee for the Humanities (SCH) at the International Sinological Centre of Charles University in Prague with the support of the Taiwan Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange (CCKF). The document “is a synthesis of many, often different, positions resulting in a common vision for the future of Asian studies”, writes Professor Milena Žic-Fuchs in the Foreword.

Call for Papers: "The Making of the Humanities III"

The third international conference on the history of the humanities, "The Making of the Humanities III", will take place at the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome, from 1 till 3 November 2012.

This is the third of a biennially organised conference that brings together scholars and historians of humanities disciplines to draw the outlines for a comparative history of the humanities. Although histories of single humanities disciplines exist for quite some time, a comparative history has only very recently been investigated and the first monographs have just appeared.

The theme of the meeting in 2012 will be "The Making of the Modern Humanities", focusing on the period 1850-2000, as well as four general panel themes that cross all periods. Topics include all aspects of the history of philology, linguistics, literary studies, musicology, historiography, art history, theatre studies, (new) media studies and other humanities disciplines, with an emphasis on their mutual influences.
