Within the framework of Collaborative Research Centre 1150 “Cultures of Decision-making”, subproject A02 investigates the development of scholastic discourses and practices of decision-making as well as the social and institutional environments in which they were embedded.
The main focus lies on
- Interactions between academic practices and theoretical concepts of decision-making
- Influence of academic concepts and practices on extra-academic procedures of decision-making
- Decisions and conflict groups
The workshop’s aim is to identify relevant questions within this field of research. In order to do so, we focus on a specific historical situation in which several aspects highly relevant for our research can be found. As a point of departure, the workshop concentrates on intra- and extra-academic lines of conflict in the surroundings of the Parisian university (c. 1300).
