Launch Event: The Futures of Intellectual History

To celebrate the launch of the Centre for Intellectual History, we are hosting an event designed to begin what we hope will be an ongoing inter-disciplinary conversation about ‘The Futures of Intellectual History’.

Panel 1 (14.00-15.30): History of Knowledge
Jon Parkin (Chair)
Erica Charters
Mogens Lærke
Kirsten Macfarlane
Lesley Smith

Panel 2 (16.00-17.30): Ideas in Society
Faridah Zaman (Chair)
Zobia Haq
Paulina Kewes
Sophie Smith
Brian Young

The idea is to provide a dedicated blog space where contributors can publish short reflections upon different aspects of the discipline and new directions for development.

Alongside the blogs, and to provide a discussion of them, we plan to hold online events providing an additional ‘live’ forum for panelists and participants to share their thoughts on the future of this exciting area of enquiry. We begin with a series of blogposts by intellectual historians at Oxford, to be released over the next few weeks.
