As noted in a blog post at the beginning of this month, the deadline for suggesting themes for the 21st international congress of the International Committee of Historical Sciences (known usually by its French acronym, CISH) has been extended to December 15, 2006, and is now rapidly approaching. Historians can help set the conference agenda by proposing major themes, specialized themes, and roundtable themes for the 21st international congress. Send proposals for themes to Iris Berger, chair of the AHA’s Committee on International Historical Activities, through email addressed to Bethany Johnson (place “CISH” in subject line).
For more on CISH and their past congresses, readers may want to consult the reports about the 19th congress held in 2000 in Oslo and the 20th congress held in 2005 in Sydney. Additional details about CISH can be found at http://www.cish.org/
