Posted in Conferences by Pippa on November 4, 2008

The European Social Science History Conference is important to migration researchers.

The European Social Science History Conference is organised bi-annually. The next ESSH conference will be in Ghent in 2010, Tuesday April 13 to Friday April 16.

The last European Social Science History Conference was in Lisbon in March 2008. Migration is the largest network of the conference. In Lisbon there were 160 papers on migration in the 40 sessions of the migration network. There were however also papers on migration in others networks (Family and Demography, Women and Gender, Africa, Asia, Antiquity, Economics, Culture, Elites, World History and Labour). Overall there were nearly 200 papers on migration. The conference is the meeting place for migration researchers.
The deadline for the  ESSH in
Ghent, Belgium, is May 1, 2009. This deadline will not be extended!
More information on the conference and an electronic pre-registration form can be found on the website of the ESSHC: http://www.iisg.nl/esshc

How to organise a panel session
Gather four speakers who each will present a paper on a related topic, a commentator who will introduce the discussion with a prepared comment on the papers and a chair. The roles of the session organiser, chair and commentator can be fulfilled by the same person.
No individual should present more than one paper. However, every participant can act as a chair or commentator in addition to presenting a paper. N.B. They cannot act as chair or commentator in the same session they are presenting a paper. Participants in a session should be from as many different disciplines and countries as possible.

Please get in touch with the network chairs if you have any questions:
