The individual membership for ISCH is valid for one/three/five calendar year(s), depending on the option chosen below. It includes two online issues of the bi-annual Cultural History journal, and the possibility to join the annual gathering (which, nonetheless, requires an additional conference fee). In addition, members are entitled to a discount on all EUP books and journal subscriptions, and to other discounts occasionally offered by other publishers.

Institutions can also become members. For further information about institutional membership, please contact the secretary.

The 2024 individual membership fee is 50 Euro (waged scholars) or 30 Euro (unwaged scholars). The 3-year discounted membership for 2024-2026 is 135 € (waged) or 81 € (unwaged). The 5-year discounted membership for 2024-2028 is 220 € (only available to waged scholars). All memberships are e-journal only since the journal became fully online in 2022.

It is possible to pay the membership fee online with a credit/debit card, via PayPal, or with a bank transfer.
