Women in Intellectual History: An Online Seminar of the International Society for Intellectual History

The International Society for Intellectual History is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for our new seminar series, Women in Intellectual History, which will take place Autumn/Winter 2021.

Women thinkers and their writings are still underrepresented in the discipline of intellectual history. Despite decades-long efforts at canon-busting, research agendas and teaching curricula alike attest that much work remains to be done to counteract the bias of gendered historiographies. As a prominent meeting place for practitioners of the discipline in all stages of their careers and from various parts of the world, ISIH provides an ideal forum for the discussion of recent work in this crucial area of research.

Through a series of online meetings in autumn and winter 2021, featuring selected presentations and commentary followed by discussion, early career researchers active in the field of women’s intellectual history will be able to connect with each other and with senior scholars with matching expertise. Submissions from a broad range of specialisations—including the history of social, political, legal and economic thought, literary history, the history of philosophy, and the history of science—and across historical periods and geographical boundaries are encouraged.

If you are an early career researcher and would like to participate in this seminar by giving a paper, please send an abstract (max. 300 words) and a short bio to elias.buchetmann@eui.eu by 23 June 2021.

Women in Intellectual History is one in a series of three events sponsored by the ISIH that have been designed by ECRs, for ECRs. These events include the 2021 ISIH conference, Coerced Labour in the Early Modern World (1500-1800): Definitions, Justifications and Resistances, and the workshop New Work in Intellectual History: A Project Development Workshop Series.

The organisers for these three events are Elias Buchetmann, Shiru Lim, and Giovanni Lista.
