The Influence of Personal Relationships between Statesmen on the History of Politics (1815-1914)

11-12 October 2010

Venue: German Historical Institute London

The workshop, hosted by the GHIL as part of the Postdoctoral Scholarship “History of the Political”, looks at the diplomatic history between Great Britain and continental Europe from an agent-centred perspective. On the basis of case studies, it aims to scrutinise the methodological possibilities of incorporating personal relationships into the history of politics. Participants will deal with the meaning of social interaction in the specific political setting of the 19th century and will explore the interdependencies between the “private” and the “public”.
