Joint Meeting of Clio-Psyché and the Brazilian Congress of History of Psychology, Nov 5-6, 2020

A joint meeting of Clio-Psyché and the Brazilian Congress of History of Psychology will take place virtually November 5-6, 2020. Details below.

In 2020, the virus stopped time. Or at least the usual way we experience temporality and sociability. In these extremely paradoxical times – distant, but (hyper)connected; suspended, but in vertiginous and uncertain transformations – we discussed anguishly about whether or not to keep the XIV Clio-Psyché Meeting, and how to do it: that is, how to migrate to the electronic platforms (our most frequent habitat these days) the meetings and exchanges that (as we understand) are the DNA of Clio Meetings.

We decided that the Meeting should take place, heroically maintaining its biennial periodicity, in order to circumvent the “time paralysis” attempted by viruses (especially those that infect Brazilian political institutions). Also, we are happy to receive the IV Brazilian Congress of History of Psychology, with the Brazilian Society for the History of Psychology (SBHP) as a companion in the organization of our Meeting.

Thus, we invite all those interested in historiographic reflections on Psy knowledge and practices to attend XIV Clio. A certainly leaner encounter, but which wants to be once again a space for exchanges and connections between faces (familiar and new) behind the screens. In addition to conferences and symposia, we will have Communications Sessions, organized around the thematic axes of the Meeting.

Finally, there is a small clarification about the registration fees: much lower than usual, practically symbolic, but still necessary to guarantee our event the minimum infrastructure (in particular, certificates and annals for the works presented).
