Spring Conferences

There’s a conference at Ave Maria University this coming February on St. Thomas Aquinas as Spiritual Teacher (Florida, February 10-12, 2022).

This coming March, the University of Illinois at Chicago is hosting a conference in Medieval Islamic and Jewish Philosophy (March 7-8, 2022). I fear the cfp deadline was last week, but perhaps it’s not too late to get a submission in. There is some funding available for participants.

In April, there’s a hybrid conference on Hylomorphism into Pieces: Elements, Atoms, and Corpuscles in the Late Middle Ages (1400-1600). (Stockholm and Leuven and Zoom, April 7-8, 2022). The cfp deadline is October 30, 2021.

The Robert Grosseteste Study Centre, in collaboration with Bishop Grosseteste University, is organizing an inaugural interdisciplinary event, The International Medieval Mind Conference (Lincoln UK, June 30-July 2, 2022). The cfp deadline is December 17, 2021.

Already begun this fall is a series of lectures on medieval philosophy organized by Danya Maslov (Moscow State) and Graziana Ciola (Radboud). There’s a talk scheduled for each of the first three Wednesdays of November, with more to be scheduled.

Next month, there’s an intriguing online interdisciplinary conference organized by the Max Planck Institute, on Scientific Questions Then and Now, featuring Peter Adamson and other luminaries (November 3, 2021, on Zoom).

UC Louvain is advertising a PhD position focused on studying nominalism in the 17th century, under the supervision of Jacob Schmutz. The dissertation can be written in English. The application deadline is October 31, 2021. Details here.

There’s a special issue on ‘Superstitio’ from Ancient to Early Modern being put together by Lexicon Philosophicum: International Journal for the History of Texts and Ideas. The deadline for submissions is November 15, 2021.

In the category of “just missed it” falls a two-day conference in Paris on Le statut ontologique des couleurs en philosophie ancienne et médiévale (October 21-22, 2022).

I don’t ordinarily post information about jobs that are listed at philjobs.org, but since John Inglis asked me to call attention to the junior position being advertised at the University of Dayton, I’m happy to do it!

I’m also happy to report that Georgetown University has reopened its search to fill the Martin Chair in medieval philosophy. Applications should be made here. For full consideration, applications should be received by November 30, 2021.
