Call for Papers

The annual Scientiae conference on disciplines of knowing in the early modern world will take place online, 9-12 June 2021. Since ca. 140 people have rolled over from the 2020 to the 2021 conference, we can only accommodate 10-12 additional panels or roundtables. 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 discussions on the issues of climate change, the relations between text and image, and gender. A full downloadable version of this CfP can be found here.

Please upload your proposal for a panel or roundtable for the Scientiae 2021 conference via this form (and do not forget to submit your CVs to pertransibunt[at]gmail.com). 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 proposals is set at 15 February 2021.

We look forward to your proposals!

Announcement

The annual Scientiae conference on disciplines of knowing in the early modern world will take place at the University of Amsterdam, 9-12 June 2021. 

We intend to hold an in-person conference in Amsterdam in 2021. We are very well aware the situation regarding the pandemic in a year from now is very uncertain, but we intend and plan to meet each other in real life. If, in the Spring of 2021, it turns out that organizing a physical conference won’t be possible, there will be an online Scientiae 2021 conference on the same dates. We are already exploring how to organize this in the best possible way.

We have reached out to the all the participants of the Amsterdam 2020 conference on 28 July 2020. If you have not received an email from us, please get in touch with the conference committee via pertransibunt[at]gmail.com.

We look forward to meeting you in Amsterdam, or online, in June 2021!
