Call for Papers: 4th ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON THE HISTORY OF RECENT SOCIAL SCIENCE

Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands

June 9-10, 2017

This two-day conference of the Society for the History of Recent Social Science (HISRESS) will bring together researchers working on the history of post-World War II social science. It will provide a forum for the latest research on the cross-disciplinary history of the post-war social sciences, including but not limited to anthropology, economics, psychology, political science, and sociology as well as related fields like area studies, communication studies, history, international relations, law and linguistics. We are especially eager to receive submissions that treat themes, topics, and events that span the history of individual disciplines.

The conference aims to build upon the recent emergence of work and conversation on cross-disciplinary themes in the postwar history of the social sciences. A number of monographs, edited collections, special journal issues, and gatherings at the École normale supérieure de Cachan, Duke University, Harvard University, the London School of Economics, New York University, the University of Toronto and elsewhere testify to a growing interest in the developments spanning the social sciences in the early, late, and post-Cold War periods. Most history of social science scholarship, however, remains focused on the 19th and early 20th centuries, and attuned to the histories of individual disciplines. Though each of the major social science fields now has a community of disciplinary historians, research explicitly concerned with cross-disciplinary topics remains comparatively rare. The purpose of the conference is to further encourage the limited but fruitful cross-disciplinary conversations of recent years.

Call for Abstracts: Cultures of Self-Help: Disordered Selves, Emergent Sociality, and Collective Horizons of Auto-Transformation

2016 AES (American Ethnological Society ) SPRING MEETING
Washington, D.C., March 31-April 2, 2016
From books to workshops and economic programs, self-help has become a
discourse and a mode of labor through which people around the world make
sense of their selfhood and their social relations. Invoking the academic
expertise of psychology, self-improvement has become a global phenomenon
not only through consumerism and the spread of the therapeutic ethos; it
has also come to organize broad swaths of communal, associational, and
intimate life amidst flexible capitalism and the retrenchment of the state.Critiques of self-help argue that it embeds neoliberal notions of self-care
and self-management at the expense of social responsibilities and
interdependencies. They argue that self-help at once replaces social
solidarities within austerity politics and a fraying social fabric, while
also reproducing race, class, and gender hierarchies by qualifying selfhood
according to access and availability to spend time in projects of
self-fashioning (Illouz 2008, McGee 2007). Whereas ‘self-help’ often posits
the commercialization of human relationships through metaphors of costs,
gains, and self-improvement, it may also constitute new imaginations of
social collectivity and ethics in times of uncertainty and transition.

This panel seeks ethnographic approaches to understanding the possibilities
and perils of self-help in diverse social contexts. How do social
applications of self-help reconfigure power, create social networks, and
apportion new rationalities and affective states of embodied control,
dependency and precariousness? How do actors seek to resolve disorder and
incoherence in personal and social spheres by using techniques of
self-help? How does self-help inculcate normative social relations, or
alternately posit emergent possibilities for emancipatory social action?
Possible paper topics may address, but are not limited to:

– ·       Ethnographic analyses of community-based self-help
associations;
– ·       Imbrications of religious activism and self-help, including
religious, spiritual, or ‘new age’ applications of self-help practices;
– ·       Regimes of self-help as modalities of political and economic
governance, including development apparatuses and microfinance;
– ·       Self-help in the context of rehabilitation, including medical
and therapeutic interventions and addiction treatment programs;
– ·       Self-help and self-control, including self-tracking and ‘life
hacking’ practices within the application of data and measurement to
lifestyle, health, and notions of the ‘quantified self’;
– ·       Sensory or phenomenological accounts of disability,
able-bodiedness, and subjectivity in self-help;
– ·       Self-help, ‘soft skills’, and affective labor within global
service industries and corporate management structures;
– ·       Digital ethnography of online or virtual self-help
communities, including anonymous chat-rooms, message boards, and other
interactive digital worlds.

Please send paper abstracts of up to 250 words to
awallace@gradcenter.cuny.edu by or before Friday, February 12th, 2016.

CFP: Histories of Forensic Psychology and Forensic Psychiatry

University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand

17-18 March 2016.

Expressions of Interest and Call for Papers

The intersection of the human sciences with the law has been an area of growing fascination for historians during the past twenty years. In particular, the development of forensic psychiatry and its relationship to criminology during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries has enjoyed attention, culminating in histories of the field in the German, English, French, Irish and Italian contexts among others. In contrast, the history of forensic psychology has been slower to develop, but has also begun to bear fruit with studies of witness psychology in Germany being a particular focus. Furthermore, while historical studies of forensic psychology and forensic psychiatry have tended to treat these disciplines separately, recent works and current research has pointed to both the cross-fertilization and competition between these two disciplines in the early decades of their evolution. Given this, a conference which brings the histories of the two disciplines together seems timely.

This conference, to be held on New Zealand’s picturesque South Island in the days leading up to Easter, hopes to attract emerging as well as established scholars with an interest in any aspect of the history of either forensic psychology or forensic psychiatry. Papers, which should be between twenty-five and thirty minutes in length, may focus on any national context or take a trans-national approach. There will be no conference fee.
At this point, the conference organizers welcome expressions of interest and requests for further information.

The deadline for abstracts (200-300 words) will be Monday, 15 February 2016.

The purpose of the conference is to further encourage the limited but fruitful cross-disciplinary conversations of recent years.

Submissions are welcome in areas such as:

- The uptake of social science concepts and figures in wider intellectual and popular discourses
- Comparative institutional histories of departments and programs
- Border disputes and boundary work between disciplines as well as academic cultures
- Themes and concepts developed in the history and sociology of natural and physical science, reconceptualized for the social science context
- Professional and applied training programs and schools, and the quasi-disciplinary fields (like business administration) that typically housed them
- The role of social science in post-colonial state-building governance
- Social science adaptations to the changing media landscape
- The role and prominence of disciplinary memory in a comparative context

The two-day conference, hosted by the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science at the London School of Economics, will be organized as a series of one-hour, single-paper sessions attended by all participants. Ample time will be set aside for intellectual exchange between presenters and attendees, as all participants are expected to read pre-circulated papers in advance.

Proposals should contain no more than 1000 words, indicating the originality of the paper. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is 5 February 2016. Final notification will be given in late February after proposals have been reviewed. Completed papers will be expected by 15 May 2016.


The organizing committee consists of
Craig Calhoun (London School of Economics), Jamie Cohen-Cole (George Washington University),
Philippe Fontaine (École normale supérieure de Cachan), and Jeff Pooley (Muhlenberg College).
