We don’t post many calls for papers here. And even if we did, we’d struggle to keep up with Stephen Daniel’s Early Modern Philosophy Calendar. But here are a couple of interesting recent CFPs.
New England Colloquium (at Yale)
Abstracts of papers on topics in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century philosophy are invited for the annual conference of the New England Colloquium in Early Modern Philosophy, to be held on May 13-15, 2013 at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. Conference speakers will include Lilli Alanen (University of Uppsala) and Alan Nelson (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill). Abstracts should be no longer than four pages; finished papers should have a reading time of 45 minutes or less. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is February 15, 2013; authors will be notified by March 15 of the program committee’s decision. Please send abstracts, preferably as e- mail attachments, to Kenneth P. Winkler, Department of Philosophy, Yale University, New Haven, CT 06520, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scottish Seminar (at Aberdeen)
Scottish Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy IV (SSEMP IV)
The Sir Duncan Rice Library, University of Aberdeen
2-3 May 2013
Key Note Speakers:
Dr. James Harris (St. Andrews)
Dr. Leo Catana (Copenhagen)
The SSEMP IV is the fourth edition of a yearly event that brings together established scholars, young researchers and advanced graduate students working in the field of Early Modern Philosophy. The aim is to foster scholarly exchange among the different generations of academics in the UK and to strengthen international collaboration. We welcome abstracts on any topic in pre-Kantian early modern philosophy (broadly defined, ranging from late Renaissance philosophy to the Enlightenment.) We particularly encourage proposals which consider early modern philosophy in relation to other related disciplines, such as theology, intellectual history and/or the history of science. Scholars abroad are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts. Presentations should be in English and approximately 45 minutes in reading length. We make an effort to assure a reasonable gender balance.
The event is organized by Beth Lord and Mogens Lærke. Abstracts (approx. 150 words) should be sent by email to Mogens Lærke on email@example.com. Deadline for submission of abstracts is 1 February 2013.
Please note that the SSEMP cannot provide funding for travel or accommodation.
