We welcome abstracts for the Halle Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy / Hallenser Seminar zur Philosophie der Neuzeit, to be held from 3 to 5 November, 2016. The seminar aims at bringing together scholars working on topics in early modern philosophy, covering roughly the period from Bacon and Montaigne to Kant. There are no restrictions as to subject matters though we are particularly interested in papers on pre-Kantian philosophy.
Keynote speakers: Stefanie Buchenau (Paris) and Dana Jalobeanu (Bucharest).
Papers can be read in English or German and should be prepared for around 40 minutes reading time. Please send abstracts of around 500 words to Falk Wunderlich (email@example.com). Deadline: 1 August 2016.
The seminar is organized by Katerina Mihaylova (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Falk Wunderlich (email@example.com). It is hosted and supported by Seminar für Philosophie, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle, Immanuel-Kant-Forum, Interdisziplinäres Zentrum für die Erforschung der europäischen Aufklärung (IZEA) and Landesforschungsschwerpunkt Aufklärung – Religion – Wissen (ARW). Please note that we are unable to provide funding for travels and accomodation. There will also be a conference fee of 30 €.
