London Summer School in Intellectual History

Read about the 2015 Summer School

Programme of the 2015 Summer School

The London Summer School in Intellectual History is a rare opportunity for graduate students to acquire further training in the discipline and its different methodologies. Running from 7 to 10 September 2015, the summer school included:

  • Special workshops
  • Masterclasses
  • Feedback on current research
  • Advice on writing and publishing
  • Discussion of newly published work in intellectual history

It was attended by doctoral students in intellectual history and related disciplines (the history of philosophy, literature, politics, and science) and by MA students intending to conduct future research in this area.

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. The Summer School, now in its fourth year, is run jointly by University College London (UCL) and Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL). Keynote lectures were delivered by Anthony J. La Vopa (North Carolina) and Quentin Skinner (QMUL). The discussions were led by members of staff from the different branches of the University of London and from overseas. In past years these have included Richard Bourke, Katrina ForresterGareth Stedman-Jones, and Georgios Varouxakis (QMUL), Jeremy Jennings and Niall O'Flaherty (KCL), Michael Lobban (LSE) as well as Valentina ArenaAngus GowlandAxel Körner, and Avi Lifschitz (UCL). From outside the University of London, they have also included Donald Winch and Iain McDaniel (Sussex), Richard Whatmore (St Andrews), Duncan Kelly (Cambridge), Felicity Green (Edinburgh) Iain Hampsher Monk (Exeter), Martin van Gelderen (Göttingen), and Knud Haakonssen (Erfurt).
