CfP: ddh20 - Data and Digital Humanities 2020

Mon, 05/18/2020 - 12:03

The digital humanities offer a particularly rich research field of studies for data processing, apart from those of the hard sciences and the social sciences. Indeed, the humanities are rarely subject to privacy principles (privacy by design, GDPR…) that affect most social science works and are not just about digital or binary data. Moreover, in DH the data pre-exist and are most often already known if they are not collected and formalized.

CfP: Delinquency, crimes and repression in History

Mon, 05/18/2020 - 12:01

The question of delinquency, in the most general sense of the term, is particularly complex because criminologists, sociologists, psychologists, psychoanalysts, doctors, lawyers, and historians who have studied this subject extensively have often expressed very different and even contradictory opinions. Difficulties arise as soon as the phenomenon is to be defined. In French law, the word “delinquency” designates all types of offenses.

Mon, 05/18/2020 - 10:57

The proposed issue of Critical Interventions addresses appropriations of black cultural aesthetics in regions that historically lack significant and visible Black communities, such as Asia and/or Eastern Europe.

The Social History Society has released an official statement on the impact of COVID-19 on the working lives of historians, and the implications for the future of our discipline.

The practice of social and cultural history has always depended on the contributions of scholars across all career stages.
