The most innovative of historical court studies build on a solid foundation of theoretical reflection. A wide variety of methodological approaches and models for the understanding of the court as a political and social institution are on offer today and all of them are in need of further development and empirical testing. Therefore, this workshop seeks to support the production of empirically well-grounded studies, which apply theoretical and methodological approaches in a creative manner.
