SECOND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: "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. See http://makingofthehumanitiesiii.blogspot.com/

GOAL OF THE CONFERENCE
This is the third of a biennially organized 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.

THEME OF THE 2012 CONFERENCE
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.

PANELS
In addition to the theme of this year’s meeting, there will be four general conference panels that cover all periods, areas and disciplines:

Panel I: Objectivity in the Humanities
Panel II: Methodology in the Humanities
Panel III: The Search for Patterns in the Humanities
Panel IV: The Sciences and the Humanities

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
Lorraine Daston (Max Planck Institute for the History of Science)
John Joseph (University of Edinburgh)
Glenn Most (Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa)
