CFP: Dutch Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy

The Dutch Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy (DSEMP) is a great arena for presenting about women and other under-represented modern philosophers. In last year’s conference there were 5 papers on women out of 13. Let’s move this up a notch this year!

The Dutch Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy VI (DSEMP) will take place on 29–30 May 2019, at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Groningen, Groningen, Netherlands.

The DSEMP brings together advanced students and established scholars to discuss the latest work in early modern philosophy, broadly conceived. Building on the success of the previous 2014–2018 editions, which gathered philosophers from all over the world, the Seminar offers workshop-style collaborations in order to stimulate scholarly exchange. The language of presentation and discussion is English.

Keynote speakers:
Katherine Brading (Duke University)
Marleen Rozemond (University of Toronto)

Submission guidelines: We welcome abstracts prepared for peer review on any topic related to early modern philosophy, broadly understood (roughly the period 1500–1800 CE). We are especially interested in presentations that discuss philosophical issues or works that have received less sustained scholarly attention, including, but not limited to: non-canonical authors and traditions, anonymous texts, and methodological reflections on doing Early Modern philosophy.
Please submit abstracts (400 words max.) to our EasyChair page (first time users will be asked to register with EasyChair).

Deadline for abstract submission: 10 January 2019 (11.59 pm – Amsterdam time).
Decisions will follow by the end of March. We will send reviewers’ reports with useful feedback on abstracts to all who wish to receive this.

Attendance is free and all are welcome, especially students. No financial assistance can be provided to support travel expenses and accommodation.

Contact: If you have questions, please send an email to Laura Georgescu (l.georgescu@rug.nl).

Co-organizers:
Laura Georgescu (University of Groningen)
Andrea Sangiacomo (University of Groningen)
The Dutch Seminar is part of the Activities of the Groningen Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Thought (www.rug.nl/gcmemt) and it is supported by Lodi Nauta’s Spinoza Prize Project.
