CfP: Living Well: Histories of Emotions, Wellness & Human Flourishing

The JHBS journal announced a special call for papers concerning the histories of emotion which might be interesting to many members of the ESHHS. The CfP reads:

Organized by the Forum for History of Human Science in honor of historian John C. Burnham (1929-2017), this special issue will bring together historical studies that analyze how the social and behavioral sciences have attended to the meanings and conditions of living well and human flourishing. We are interested in accounts that consider what these sciences, as well as popular works that draw on them, have said about living well, in its spiritual, psychological, cultural, social, economic, and/or political dimensions.

Further information can be found here.
