About History of the Human Sciences Journal

History of Human Sciences is an international journal of peer-reviewed scholarly research, which provides an important forum for contemporary research in the social sciences, in the humanities, and in human psychology and biology. It is especially concerned with research that reflexively examines its own historical origins and interdisciplinary influences in an effort to review current practice and to develop new research directions.Critical Examination In recent years we have witnessed a significant convergence of interest between the social sciences and the humanities - as well as in relation to the psychological and biological sciences. Scholars are critically examining their traditional assumptions and preoccupations about human beings, their societies and their histories in light of developments that cut across disciplinary boundaries. An Interdisciplinary Approach History of the Human Sciences aims to expand our understanding of the human through a broad interdisciplinary approach. The journal publishes articles from a wide range of fields - including sociology, psychology, anthropology, political science, philosophy, literary criticism, critical theory, art history, linguistics, and the law - that engage with the histories of these disciplines and the interactions between them. The journal does not restrict its remit to any particular theoretical, historiographical or methodological orientation, but rather seeks to expand the analytical frameworks used to understand the histories and epistemologies of the human sciences. That said, a successful article will typically:     • address at least one of the modern human sciences broadly conceived (including psychology, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, history/historiography, medicine, sociology, anthropology, economics, geography, political economy, human biology, neuroscience, critical theory, linguistics, literary theory). By 'modern', we generally mean post-Cartesian, though we are not averse to submissions on ancient human sciences (e.g., Ancient Greek psychology, medieval medicine) if the approach has significance for modernity or is interpreted from a modern point of view (as in, for example, Foucault).     • take an intellectual-historical or an interdisciplinary approach (or in the best-case scenario, both of these) to open up epistemological and/or historiographical questions relating to the chosen topic or problematic.     • address questions of method. In general, we avoid publishing:     • Strictly disciplinary histories and/or case studies that focus on one human science and do not open up wider epistemological questions of interest to those working on other human sciences.     • Articles that use methods that are unusual in the humanities and interpretive social sciences without explicitly reflecting on the epistemological implications of such methods.     • Articles that address fields outside of the human sciences without considering the implications of the argument for the history of the human sciences.
