European Social Science History Conference (ESSHC) 2025 – Call for proposals papers and sessions – deadline proposals 15 April 2024

The 15th European Social Science History Conference (ESSHC) 2025 will take place on 26-29 March 2025 in Leiden, organised by the International Institute for Social History in co-operation with Leiden University.

The aim of the ESSHC is bringing together scholars interested in explaining historical phenomena using the methods of the social sciences. The conference is characterised by a lively exchange in many small groups, rather than by formal plenary sessions. The conference welcomes papers and sessions on any historical topic and any historical period. It is organized in 27 thematic networks; the organisers strongly encourage interdisciplinary and international sessions.

Deadline for submission of paper and sessions proposals is 15 April 2024.
