Intellectual History: 5 Questions

The 5 Questions-series format is to ask five questions linking personal experience with scholarly work, not because there is any deep or global truth in biography but because scientific disciplines, their research and methods, are also inherently historical and contingent. A way to approach the question of what intellectual history is and how it can (and should) be made is personal, institutional, professional and disciplinary going from the most individual to the greatest material and ideational changes in politics, society and university. By linking the questions of the personal exposure to intellectual history with reflections on both one's own work and the state of our discipline, we hope to provoke scholarly self-reflective thought as well as provide a little bit of material to the grander tale of intellectual history.
