Göttingen International Conference
The University of Göttingen is happy to announce that it will be hosting the international conference “Conceptualising Political Leadership: Towards an Intellectual History of Caesarism”, which aims at reconstructing the ‘long’ history of the concept of Caesarism by including contributions of scholars stemming from different fields of research and working on different epochs – from Classical Studies to History of Political Thought, from Modern European History to Political Theory. The conference will also be the occasion to discuss some of the most recent scholarly research on the topic, by contributing to the revival of the studies on Caesarism.
Speakers include (in alphabetical order): F. Antonini (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen), M. Broers (Oxford University), L. Cerasi (Ca’ Foscari University of Venice), C. Cuttica (Paris 8), A. Jordan (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen), I. McDaniel (Sussex University), J.-W. Müller (Princeton University), C. Nederman (Texas A&M University), M. Prutsch (EU Parliament), F. Santangelo (Newcastle University), G. Souvlis (University of Trace), A. Storring (KCL).
The conference is generously funded by the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung. It will also be possible to attend the conference online. For information please contact Francesca Antonini.
