Futures of Intellectual History 
Graduate Conference

October 23-24, 2015

The Remarque Institute
53 Washington Square South, Room 324
New York, NY 10012


A recent wave of scholarship has reinvigorated intellectual history and expanded the field beyond its traditional geographical, methodological and conceptual boundaries. Though taking place at all levels of the academy, much of this recent scholarship is the work of graduate students. Despite the vitality and breadth of their research there are few forums for advanced students working in intellectual history to engage with each other’s work. This "Futures of Intellectual History" conference will provide such a forum. The conference will bring together graduate students who use the diverse tools of intellectual history to answer questions that include, but also go beyond those traditionally asked by the field. Invited to participate are scholars working in fields including but not limited to the history of science and technology, the history of social thought and the social sciences, the history of concepts, legal history, and global history. Not constrained by a single theme, the conference will provide a space for diverse methodologies and questions to come into productive tensions with each other in ways often not possible in other settings.
