CALL FOR PAPERS: Scientiae Conference on disciplines of knowing in the early modern world

Proposals are invited for the ninth Scientiae Conference on disciplines of knowing in the early modern world, which will take place online, 9-12 June 2021. Keynote speakers will be Florike Egmond (University of Leiden) and Sven Dupré (University of Amsterdam / Utrecht University).

The Programme Committee welcomes panel-proposals from any disciplinary perspective, yet we would like to encourage submissions that seek to examine modes of early modern knowledge formation and application that cross traditional disciplinary, national, geographic, linguistic or intellectual borders. The conference is interdisciplinary and the sessions should foster discussion transcending the disciplinary scope. This year we especially welcome participants to discuss issues of climate change, the relations between text and image, and gender.

Proposals should contain a max. 250-word general abstract and a max. 100-word outline for every single contribution, plus a 1-page CV for each participant.

The deadline for submission is 15 February 2021.
