Research Project

Intelligence as a sociological category around 1900 (working title)

My current project “Intelligence as a sociological category around 1900 (working title)” deals with the question how the category of “intelligence (Intelligenz)” became one of the central topoi of sociological discussions at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. At the early stage of my research, I will concentrate on sociological debates on this topic which took place in German Empire. Due to the unestablished status of sociology in this period, I will examine not only publications in scientific journals, but also the public debates on “intelligence” in cultural and political press, in which social scientists played the role of experts. Additionally, not only German discourse on this issue, but also publications in Polish and Yiddish language journals will consist valuable sources for my project. Thus, the process of becoming an object of sociological research will be examined against the backdrop of the diversity of the cultural, political, and social contexts of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
