New Graduate School in Global Intellectual History!

In April 2017 the Berlin based Graduate School Global Intellectual History will start its work. With a team of 12 pre-doctoral fellows, 2 post-docs and a prolific academic staff it explores intellectual reactions to processes of entanglement from the 18th to 20th century. It is interested specifically in the study of transregional and cross-cultural transfers of concepts and ideas in their social, cultural and political contexts. It combines approaches from global and intellectual history with the deep knowledge of languages and cultures provided by area studies programs.

The graduate school is funded by the German Research Council (DFG) and jointly run by Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Partner institutions cooperate through the Global History Collaborative and include Princeton University, L’Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, and the University of Tokyo.
