In the summer of 2008, Concepta, International Research School in Conceptual History and Political Thought, and its partner institutions will organise the fourth Introduction to Conceptual History summer school. An international team of distinguished scholars and visiting lecturers will help participants critically examine the chief concepts in the humanities and social sciences from new perspectives. The summer school has two main objectives. First, it introduces students to the fundamental aspects of the theory and methodology of conceptual history, which they can then use as tools in their own research. Second, it explores contemporary trends in conceptual history through case studies.
The course includes a series of lectures, a seminar and workshops. It is designed for Finnish and international PhD and advanced Masterís degree students from various academic fields. Interest in the humanities and/or political thought is an asset. Successful completion of the summer school will require attending the lectures, seminar and workshops, and the completion of a written assignment.
The course programme will be published in March 2008 on the Concepta home page at
