Relaunch of Contributions to the History of Concepts Journal

Published on 24 October, 2011

Berghahn Journals is pleased announce the relaunch of Contributions to the History of Concepts with the publication of Volume 6, Issue 1.

Berghahn Journals is pleased announce the relaunch of Contributions to the History of Concepts with the publication of Volume 6, Issue 1. Contributions to the History of Concepts serves as a platform for theoretical and methodological articles as well as empirical studies on the history of concepts and their social, political, and cultural contexts. It aims to promote the dialogue between the history of concepts and other disciplines, such as intellectual history, history of knowledge and science, linguistics, translation studies, history of political thought and discourse analysis.

 

Volume 6, Issue 1 features a translation by Michaela Richter of the introduction and prefaces to Reinhart Koselleck’s Geschichtliche Grundbegriffe, the first English translation of this important work. Articles address an array of topics in conceptual history, beginning with Nicholay Koposov’s proposal of a semantic theory of collective singulars such as “history” and “state” that came into being during the Enlightenment. Next Jan Ifversen explores the object and the methodology of conceptual history by elaborating on the idea of “key concepts” and proposes studying them according to two different aspects of meaning. Justinas Dementavičius then examines the conceptualization of “state” in twentieth century Lithuanian political thought and it’s reflection in the Lithuanian independence movement during the years 1988-1990. The issue concludes with the Mission Statement of the European Conceptual History Project.
