Abstract

The emergence of mass politics in the 19th century deeply changed the way the people was conceptualized - but also its own influence on conceptual change. This Panel will gather contributions about the people as both an object and a subject of conceptual history from 19th century to the present. Particular attention will be given to Papers that discuss the tension between populist politics and political liberalism with regard to the political role of the people.
