What ISCH Is All About

In research and teaching, the vitality of cultural history is burgeoning, with a broad variety of interpretations of culture cross-fertilising between disciplines (history, human sciences, cultural studies, literature and media, and many more) and between different countries. In July 2007, a conference discussing Varieties of Cultural History was held in Aberdeen, Scotland. A large number of its participants agreed to form an international society to promote the further development of cultural history. "Performance, Politics, and Play" is the twelfth annual conference of the now-thriving International Society for Cultural History. The society publishes a peer-reviewed journal, Cultural History (Edinburgh University Press), and monographs in a book series with Routledge.
