Political Thought and Intellectual History (PTIH)

Effects of Good Gov

Welcome to the Graduate Workshop in PTIH

As organizers of this year’s Graduate Workshop in Political Thought and Intellectual History, we welcome submissions for possible presentations. As with previous years, these presentation seminars serve a multifold purpose.

Doctoral students can present the results of current research, while MPhil students might want to use the opportunity to receive some feedback on preparatory work for their final dissertation or essays.

An inter-disciplinary approach

The research outlook of the workshop is deeply inter-disciplinary. We welcome papers on intellectual history, global intellectual history, contemporary political philosophy, critical theory, cultural history, and beyond. Even if your research interests might, at first sight, only have a tangential affinity with the field of intellectual history: don’t hesitate to submit your abstract, including a short academic CV, to publicize further research during these sessions.
