Methodology in Question
International PhD conference in the History of Science and Ideas
Stockholm University, 22–23 November 2014

Commentators: Mikkel Thorup (Aarhus University), Solveig Jülich (Uppsala University) & Andreas Hellerstedt (Stockholm University)

Call for Papers

While issues of theory and method are central to the practice of writing history, such questions are often discussed in isolation from empirical thesis work. This conference provides an opportunity to address methodological problems as have presented them- selves in the process of empirical investigation.

PhD candidates are invited to submit abstracts for 15-minute papers in English. Submissions are welcomed from all branches of intellectual history, the history of political, religious and economic thought, the history of science, medicine and technology, and related fields of enquiry. Contributors are requested to use their empirical material as context or framework for discussions of methodological or theoretical issues that transcends the specific enquiry, and which are relevant to scholars working in different areas of the field.

Methodological and theoretical problems that can be addressed include, but are not limited to: genealogy and referentiality, discourse analysis, conceptual history, hermeneutics, critical theory and critique of ideology, situated knowledge, performativity and praxis, actor-network theory, media archaeology, microhistory, and oral history. Please note that papers will be placed in sessions according to the methodological questions raised, rather than on the basis of their respective field of enquiry.

Both days will open with a keynote lecture, and the second day will close with a panel discussion in which keynote speakers and invited commentators discuss theory and method with reference to the presented papers.

Abstracts of no more than 200 words are submitted in PDF format to the address before 15 September 2014. State “Abstract submission” in the subject line of the email, while giving the title of your paper, your name, your institutional affiliation, and your preferred contact email address in the body of the email.
