The Republic of Intellectual History

If the Republic of Letters occasionally meets for coffee or conferences, so too do intellectual historians often come together for talks, regular workshops, and summer schools. The editors at JHIBlog hope to increasingly encourage and promote these events with your help. We will soon have a calendar of events on the website, with readers encouraged to submit news of interesting happenings both in intellectual history as well as related fields. Here we certainly want to look further afield. If the discipline itself has ambitions to a global scope, intellectual history is being practiced globally as well. Here such organizations as the International Network for the Theory of History have begun paving the way for collaborations and contacts, particularly in their handy listing of conferences which will interest intellectual historians of all stripes. Yet not all traditions of doing intellectual history are converging—nor should they, necessarily. This makes for a variegated and exciting map which we hope readers from all over the world can help fill in over time. And hopefully we can do our part in fostering this community.

So without further ado, here are a few events, workshops, exhibitions, and programs which the editors look forward to participating in (or very much wish we could attend–would any readers like to contribute their impressions?):
