Political in Political History – Meaning and Understanding of Politics

17–19 June 2019 | University of Jyväskylä, Finland

The first session of the fifth annual workshop of the Political History PhD Network took place at the University of Jyväskylä on 17-19 June 2019.

Concentrating on the theme of what is ‘political’ in political history, this workshop questioned if and to what extent ‘political’ can be understood in wider terms than merely through parties and parliament. The workshop did indeed demonstrate the wide diversity of perspectives that our field can have towards the political sphere, as young scholars from all over Europe and the world demonstrated their expertise in a variety of subjects related to political history.

This three-day workshop was organized by Zachris Haaparinne, Risto-Matti Matero, Jari Parkkinen, Juho Saksholm & Joonas Tammela (University of Jyväskylä).
