Call for Papers

CHEIRON invites submissions of papers, thematic symposia, panels, roundtables, workshops and posters that deal with an aspect of the history of the human, behavioral or social sciences or related historiographical and methodological issues.

Submissions must be received by February 26th, 2024, 5 pm EST.

Notification of acceptance will be sent by the end of March 2024.

Attendance at the conference will be required for the presentation of papers. However, we will “stream” sessions using a virtual format so that “Virtual attendees,” as members of the audience, will be able to engage in discussions during sessions.

All submissions should conform to the guidelines listed below:
