International Research School in Conceptual History and Political Thought

Tanska, Kööpenhamina
9.8.2015 – 21.8.2015

PhD School at the Faculty of Humanities at University of Copenhagen

International Research School in Conceptual History and Political Thought

Offered in cooperation with the Dept. of Culture and Global Studies, Aalborg
University, The Saxo Institute, University of Copenhagen, the Dept. of History,
University of Southern Denmark, the Graduate School of Arts, Aarhus University,
and the PhD School of Culture, Language and Philosphy at CUID, RUC.

In the summer of 2015, Concepta, International Research School in Conceptual
History and Political Thought, and partner institutions will organize the ninth
Introduction to Conceptual History and Political Thought course (the course have
previously been located at the University of Helsinki, Finland, and at Aarhus
University, Denmark). An international team of distinguished scholars and
visiting lecturers will help participants critically examine the chief concepts
and thoughts in the humanities and social sciences from new perspectives. The
goal is to illuminate the languages and arguments that are central to the
operation of political and social life through the study of their migration,
reception, translation, and diffusion through time and space. Analysis of
concepts and thoughts involves looking at larger semantic, discursive,
ideological and rhetorical settings in which they are given meaning and demands
familiarity with a variety of linguistically oriented approaches to discourse
and ideology, as well as to rhetoric.

The course has two main objectives. First, it introduces students to the
fundamental aspects of the theory and methodology of conceptual history and
political thought scholars such as Reinhart Koselleck, Quentin Skinner, John
Pocock, and Michel Foucault), which they can then use as tools in their own
research. Second, it explores contemporary trends in the field through case

The course includes a series of lectures, a seminar and workshops. It is
designed for Danish and international PhD and advanced Master’s degree
students from various academic fields.
