    CONCEPTA: International Research School in Conceptual History Offered in cooperation with the Dept. of Culture and Global Studies, Aalborg University, The Saxo Institute, University of Copenhagen, the Dept. of History, University of Southern Denmark, and the Graduate School of Arts, Aarhus University In the summer of 2013, Concepta, International Research School in Conceptual History and Political Thought, and partner institutions will organize the eight Introduction to Conceptual History course (the course have been located at the University of Helsinki, Finland, in the previous years). 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 goal of conceptual history is to illuminate the concepts and ideas that are central to the operation of political and social life through the study of their migration, reception, translation, and diffusion through time and space. Conceptual analysis involves looking at larger semantic, discursive, ideological and rhetorical settings in which concepts are given meaning. Doing conceptual history, therefore, demands familiarity with a variety of linguistically oriented approaches to discourse and ideology, as well as to rhetoric. The course has two main objectives. First, it introduces students to the fundamental aspects of the theory and methodology of conceptual history (scholars such as Reinhart Koselleck, Quentin Skinner, John Pocock, and Michel Foucault), 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 Danish and international PhD and advanced Master’s degree students from various academic fields. TEACHERS AND LECTURERS Professor Martin Burke, CUNY, New York Senior Researcher Margrit Pernau, , Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin Professor Helge Jordheim, University of Oslo Postdoc Jani Marjanen, CENS, Helsinki University Professor Michael Freeden, University of Nottingham Emeritus Senior Research Fellow Hans Erich Bödeker, The Max Planck Institute, Göttingen.
