Synopsis
Die Entnazifizierung des MH (The Denazification of MH) is an experimental, philosophical documentary which explores the denazification proceedings of world-renowned and infamous German philosopher Martin Heidegger (1889-1976). Shot entirely in or near Schwarzwald where Heidegger lived and worked, The Denazification of MH portrays and interprets Heidegger’s refusal to honestly confront and his reluctance to publicly apologize for his active role in the Nazi party. By utilizing 50 year-old recordings of Heidegger and a single quote from the Greek Pre-Socratic philosopher, Heraclitus, The Denazification of MH depicts Heidegger’s own philosophical interpretation of his Nazi involvement and his belief in the power of interpretation (hermeneutics), the Western philosophical tradition, and words.

Introduction to Conceptual History, Helsinki Summer School 2007
Helsinki 07.08.2007  - 23.08.2007

Helsinki Summer School 2007
Introduction to Conceptual History

Date: 7-23 August 2007
Place: Helsinki, Finland

Organisers
Helsinki Summer School; Centre for Nordic Studies CENS, University of Helsinki; Danish Research School for History; Finnish Centre of Excellence in Political Thought and Conceptual Change, University of Jyväskylä in collaboration with CONCEPTA.

Students
The course is suitable for Finnish and international students from various academic backgrounds, although an interest in the humanities and political thought is an advantage. The course is designed for Ph.D. and advanced M.A. students.

Course description
The presumption that concepts are timeless has been replaced in recent decades by an awareness of their unavoidable historicity and temporality.

By using linguistically orientated methods informed by those
advocated by Reinhart Koselleck and Quentin Skinner, conceptual history provides an inventive - as well as well argued - approach to the analysis of key historical and political concepts. The goal of conceptual history is to illuminate concepts and ideas that are central to the operation of political and social life. It is concerned with the migration, reception, translation, diffusion and employment of concepts and
ideas in both time and place.

A group of internationally distinguished scholars will provide participants with the means to re-examine common concepts in the humanities and social sciences from new perspectives. The emphasis of this intensive introductory course is two-fold. First, it will introduce the general premises and practices of conceptual history, thereby enabling participants to use these methods in their own subsequent research. Second, it will explore contemporary trends in conceptual history by means of case studies. The course will be conducted through a series of lectures and workshops.

In order to complete the course successfully, participants will be required to participate in the lectures and workshops and to complete a written assignment. The course is suitable for Finnish and international Ph.D. and advanced M.A. students from various academic backgrounds. Participants are encouraged to contact the organiser if they would like to present their own work-in-progress in conceptual history and related fields in the workshops.

Credits
6 ECTS requires active participation in the lectures, seminar and workshops and an essay of 10-15 A4s. 10 ECTS requires active participation in the lectures, seminar and workshops and an essay of 20-25 A4s.
