Encuentro conjunto de la ESHHS & CHEIRON

Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, 27 junio – 1 julio 2016

Noemí Pizarroso López (UNED)

Poco antes del inicio de las vacaciones estivales se celebraba el congreso conjunto de la ESHHS (European Society for the History of the Human Sciences) y de la Cheiron (International Society for the History of Behavioural and Social Sciences), sociedades que cada cuatro años se reúnen, alternativamente, en uno u otro lado del Atlántico. Esta vez el encuentro ha tenido lugar en Barcelona, con un programa que ha sabido estar a la altura de los conocidos atractivos turísticos de la ciudad, y que ha logrado que nos desplazáramos cada día al campus de Bellaterra de la Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona (UAB), donde las sesiones tuvieron lugar. Quizá una de las primeras cuestiones a destacar sea esa: el volumen e interés del programa. Nada menos que tres mesas paralelas, distribuidas a lo largo de tres días y medio, que han podido generar alguna que otra dosis de frustración entre quienes veíamos coincidir intereses. Afortunadamente, nada que los amenos y caseros coffee breaks no hayan permitido arreglar.

La riqueza del encuentro, obviamente, fue mucho más allá de lo cuantitativo. En lo que a procedencia geográfica se refiere, más allá de los habituales colegas de EEUU y del largo y ancho de Europa, hemos podido disfrutar de una nutrida representación latinoamericana, con colegas de Brasil, Argentina o Chile, de Australia y hasta de Taiwan. En términos de contenido creo que hay que resaltar, y celebrar, la apertura de este encuentro a la historia de la ciencia en general y a la historia de las ciencias humanas, en particular. Se ha ido esta vez mucho más allá de la historia de la psicología, que ha venido ocupando, a pesar del nombre de las sociedades en cuestión, un lugar bastante preeminente. Sin duda ha jugado aquí un papel importante la figura de Annette Mülberger, principal encargada  de la organización del congreso, a la sazón actual directora del Centro de Historia de la Ciencia de la UAB (CEHIC).
