The International Network for Theory of History was established in 2012. Its aim is to foster collaboration and the exchange of ideas among theorists of history.

Numerous scholars around the world are working on the theory and philosophy of history: the ever growing number of new publications and journals devoted to this subject attest to the intellectual blossoming of the field. However the field of historical theory remains fragmented and most of its researchers often work at the periphery of long-established academic disciplines and frequently in relative isolation. Because of this, it is difficult to keep track of theorists of history, conferences, calls for papers, etc. The aim of this network is to facilitate this by offering a directory of theorists of history, an online community-based bibliography of theory of history, as well as a forum for announcing events.

INTH is non-exclusive (free membership), non-thematic and community-based. Anyone who identifies herself as a theorist of history is invited to join in, to benefit from the network’s resources and to contribute. Please feel free to send us any kind of information on new (or missing) publications, events and researchers.
