Here are various news items that I’ve gathered. This will probably be my last post until the end of the summer.
- This coming week, there’s an impressive conference in Poland on Mind and Body: Aspects of Medieval Natural Philosophy (Lodz, June 13-14, 2019).
- The 5th Rio Colloquium on Logic and Metaphysics in the Later Middle Ages is coming later this month, on Distinctions and Priorities in the Later Middle Ages (Rio de Janeiro, June 24-26, 2019). (Apparently there’s no information on the internet, but anyone interested should contact the organizer, Professor Rodrigo Guerizoli.)
- A conference on Naturaleza y Teoría Política en el Pensar Medieval y Renacentista will take place this summer at the Pontificia Universidad Católica Argentina (Buenos Aires, August 26-28, 2019)
- There’s an International Graduate Conference on the History of Philosophy scheduled for September on Platonism and Aristotelianism in the History of Philosophy (Pavia, Sept. 16-17, 2019). The cfp deadline is July 15.
- The University of Notre Dame is hosting a conference in September on Cusanus Today: Prospects for Philosophy, Theology, and Mysticism (Sept. 19-21, 2019)
- A conference with a focus on translation will take place next spring: Traduction… trahison? Textes, représentations, archéologie, autorité et mémoire de l’Antiquité à la Renaissance (Université de Picardie-Jules Verne, March 11-13, 2020)

- I’ve stumbled upon an interesting attempt to collect information about medieval texts in translation, at HMAOT: Haut Moyen Age Occidental en Traduction. The focus is on the earlier Middle Ages, and runs well beyond philosophy.
- The Averroes Edition Project in Cologne is looking to fill a three-year PhD position in Arabic philosophy. Details here.
- There’s an interesting interview with Thomas Williams at 3:16. He talks there, among many other things, about his new translation of the Confessions.
