Workshop: Demokratie and the Geschichtliche Grundbegriffe fifty years on
This workshop is part of the Re-imagining Democracy Project that has run since 2004 and is now focussing on Central and Northern Europe. It will bring together scholars of the history of the German speaking world to reflect on the contribution and limitations of the account of the history of the German word Demokratie provided in the Geschichtliche Grundbegriffe (a dictionary of historical concepts) in which Reinhart Koselleck played a leading part. Developments in digital resources and associated scholarship raise a series of critical questions about this account- and this workshop will bring together historians, and other scholars to review the contribution that these new resources and approaches might make.
There will be no formal papers, but just structured discussion. Participants from Warwick are very welcome, and there will be opportunities to contribute to the work of the meeting.
