The ESSHC aims at bringing together scholars interested in explaining historical phenomena using the methods of the social sciences. The conference is characterized by a lively exchange in many small groups, rather than by formal plenary sessions.
The Conference welcomes papers and sessions on any topic and any historical period. It is organized in a large number of networks:
Africa Antiquity Asia Criminal Justice Culture Economics Education and Childhood – Elites and Forerunners Ethnicity and Migration Family and Demography – Global History – Health and Environment Labour Latin America – Material and Consumer Culture – Middle Ages Oral History – Politics, Citizenship and Nations – Religion Rural Sexuality – Social Inequality – Spatial and digital History – Science and Technology Theory – Urban Women and Gender
