International Graduate School for Legal Historical Research
The International Graduate School for Legal Historical Research is now part of the Summer Academy.
The International Graduate School for Legal Historical Research was coordinated by members of the following institutes: Instituto de Investigaciones de Historia del Derecho in Argentina, Instituto Brasileiro de História do Direitoin in Brasil and Max-Planck-Institut für europäische Rechtsgeschichte in Germany.
The International Graduate School brought together outstanding young researches in the field of legal history in yearly workshops which rotated between Argentina, Brasil and Germany. It offered the possibility to present one’s own research project to a circle of renowned researchers and experts.
The International Graduate School for Legal Historical Research was created to intensify the academic exchange about legal history of Europe and Latin America in a transnational perspective.
Its goals were:
- Promoting young researchers by establishing a space for a transnational and transcontinental dialogue,
- Creating intellectual networks that help to enrich each country’s legal historical traditions,
- Elaborating comparative historical perspectives to explore the differences and similarities between the European and Ibero-American discourse,
- Giving teachers and doctoral students access to methodical concepts, research perspectives, and practices beyond those that are dominant in their own local/national scientific community;
- Enabling young researches to adequately and productively transfer juridical terminology and theories into other linguistic, cultural, political, and socio-economical contexts,
- Promoting contacts between teachers and graduate students of the participating countries that function as basis for the establishment of international research networks.
