The Call for Papers for the 2019 Theosophical History conference has been finalised and appears below. It offers continuity and change. Once again Dr Santucci chairs the conference, and the Programme Committee. But the location moves to a different island, and the organisation is in the hands which have made such a success of the European School of Theosophy. The 2019 School is immediately before the TH conference, in the same location.
