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 9 to 12 September, the summer school will include:
- Special workshops
- Feedback on current research
- Advice on writing and publishing
- Discussion of newly published work in intellectual history
Applications are welcome from doctoral students in intellectual history and related disciplines (the history of philosophy, literature, politics, and science) and from 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. Members of staff from the different branches of the University of London will lead the discussions. The Summer School, now in its second year, is run jointly by University College London (UCL) and Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL). Participants include Gareth Stedman-Jones, Richard Bourke, and Georgios Varouxakis (QMUL), Iain Hampsher-Monk (Exeter), Angus Gowland and Avi Lifschitz (UCL).
Dates and fees: The event starts on 9 September 2013 in the evening and ends in the early afternoon on 12 September 2013. Participants are required to contribute £185, which covers tuition, lunches, and a reception on the first evening. In addition, those who need accommodation in central London can book a reserved room at UCL's Shafer House for £37 per night.
How to apply: Please send a CV and a brief abstract of current or future research to firstname.lastname@example.org until 25 June 2013.
