23rd International Conference on the History of Concepts: Global Modernity. Emotions, Temporalities and Concepts



Unfortunately the conference, which we had originally planned for September 2020, and then for February 2021 has once again to be postponed.

All the papers and panels, which were already accepted, retain their status. Please just inform us whether you would still be interested in presenting at the new date.

We expect, however, that there will be free slots and therefore also invite new applications until September 1, 2020. Please see the Call for Papers for the details.

The conference will be organized by the History of Concepts Group; the Research Area "Global History" of Freie Universität Berlin and the "Center for the History of Emotions" at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin.

It will take place in Berlin, 2-4 September 2021 at the campus of the Freie Universität Berlin.
