CfP: Conference Chernobyl as a Historical Caesura: Environment, Politics, and Science

University of Naples Federico II, 9-10 December 2022 The Departments of Social Sciences and of Humanities of the University of Naples Federico II, the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute, the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, and the Department of History of the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy are pleased to announce an open call for papers for the conference Chernobyl as a Historical Caesura: Environment, Politics, and Science to be held in Naples on 9-10 December 2022. Over the last ten years, scholars have devoted an increased attention to the study of the role the Chernobyl (Ukr. Chornobyl’) disaster played from a political, social, cultural, and environmental point of view. In her seminal book A Manual for Survival, Kate Brown defined the incident and its aftermath as an unprecedented episode in human history with long-term consequences that are not yet fully evident even today.

CfP: Histories of Knowledge

Histories of Knowledge: Political, Historical and Cultural Epistemologies in Intellectual History Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, 12-15 September 2022 The International Society for Intellectual History is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for its 2022 conference to be held in Venice. The conference addresses the knowledge-power entanglement in intellectual history, including at the level of historiography. In recent years, the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, the growth of global inequalities, and the emergence of global conspiracy theories have brought to the fore the political dimensions of knowledge by eliciting debates on issues such as post-truth, the crisis of expertise, and the control of data and information. Drawing inspiration from the pressing issues of today’s world, #ISIH2022 will use the lens of intellectual history to explore the mutual influence of ideas stemming from the political and cultural realms, ranging from philosophy to the sciences, the arts, and li

CfP: FOOD, NUTRITION AND EDUCATION - Special thematic area for Global Educator

We are now inviting papers for our forthcoming Vol. 3. Issue 1, 2022 focusing on the theme of “FOOD, NUTRITION AND EDUCATION”, which is scheduled to be published June 2022. Last date of Submission will be 31 May 2022. Food, nutrition and their relationship to educational quality and outcomes is vital. We know that undernourished children, if they do attend school, perform poorly. The quality of nutrition has also become significant; overweight and obese children with a diet high in saturated fats, sugar and excessive carbohydrates face adolescent growth and educational challenges. In this special issue of Global Educator we invite contributions that explore the issues, problems and debates around food and nutrition and its relationship to schooling in the developing world. Contributions should be theoretically informed, but also insightful with practical examples emphasizing your arguments. The Editors invite submissions of Feature Articles around 2000- 6000 words, Reflections from the
