Iberoideas: Virtual Forum of the Iberoamerican Network of Politico-Conceptual and Intellectual History (RIAHPCI).

Recently, the field of conceptual history has called the attention of a growing number of students, which resulted into the proliferation of historical works on political languages, concepts, and discourses. Historians and social scientists, aware of the inextricable links between history and language, as well as the need to comprehend the view that past actors had of their world and themselves, endeavor to jointly approach thinking and action. This new methodological perspective served to bring together disciplines which hitherto have remained relatively isolated, such as the new political history, the history of concepts, social and institutional history, and constitutional history. The number and variety of studies on key notions of modernity, such as nation, individual, citizenship, republic, liberalism, rights, representation, public opinion, and so on, in Iberian and Iberoamerican societies concretely demonstrates the vitality of these new approaches and the increasing collaboration among specialists in different fields of knowledge.
The Iberoamerican Network of Politico-Conceptual and Intellectual History intends to diffuse these new scholarly orientations and help the exchange among researches from both sides of the Atlantic. The forum IberoIdeas seeks, thus, to serve as a vehicle for the debate among different perspectives and approaches to the field of meanings, and to explore different ways to understand better how the modes of comprehension of reality historically changed.
