The London-Sussex Summer School in Intellectual History is a rare opportunity for graduate students to acquire further training in the discipline and its different methodologies. It will include special workshops and masterclasses, feedback on current research, and advice on writing and publishing.
London is now one of the international centres of research and teaching in the history of political thought and intellectual history with a dedicated graduate programme and year-round research seminars, conferences, and workshops. Members of staff from the different branches of the University of London and from the Sussex Centre for Intellectual History will lead the discussions. Applications are welcome from doctoral students in intellectual history or related disciplines (the history of philosophy, literature, politics and science) and from MA students intending to pursue doctoral study in this area.
The Summer School is convened by Professor Knud Haakonssen (former Director of the Centre for Intellectual History at Sussex and Honorary Professor of History at UCL) and Dr Angus Gowland of the Department of History at UCL.
Dates and fees: The event starts on 3 September 2012 in the evening and ends mid-afternoon on 6 September 2012. Participants are required to contribute either £100, or £230 which will also cover three nights’ accommodation in central London. Fees include lunches and a reception dinner on the first evening.
