21-23 October 2010, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands


Organized by the Working Group History of the Humanities

of the Huizinga Institute of Cultural History


This is the second of a biennially organized conference that brings together scholars
 and historians of humanities disciplines to draw the outlines for a comparative history
 of the humanities. Although there exist histories of single humanities disciplines, 
a comparative history would satisfy a long-felt need, and fill a conspicuous
 gap in intellectual history.
The first highly successful conference, held in 2008, discussed the early modern
period. The theme of this year’s meeting is From Early Modern to Modern Disciplines, 
focusing on the period 1600-1900. Topics include all aspects of the history of philology, 
linguistics, rhetoric, musicology, literary theory, historiography, art history, archeology and 
other humanities disciplines, with an emphasis on their interrelations.
