Postdocs and conferences: Spring 2023

The Human Abilities project in Berlin is advertising another postdoc, in medieval or early modern philosophy. The application deadline is April 16, 2023. Details here.

Kristell Trego (Fribourg) is advertising a one-year postdoc in medieval philosophy. The position requires fluency in French and a good knowledge of German and English. The application deadline is March 30, 2023. Details here.

The History of Philosophy Forum at Notre Dame is again advertising their Small Grants Program, to be used for travel and accommodation while doing research in South Bend. I fear the application deadline was yesterday, March 15, but perhaps a slight extension could be granted. (If not, well, make a plan to apply next year.)

The Vicious, Sinful, Antisocial Workshop runs, at the start of April, in hybrid format (April 3-4, 2023, Jyväskylä).

The annual Journée Incipit takes place in Paris on April 1, 2023. Details here.

Tobias Hoffmann (Sorbonne) has asked me to announce that the Conférences Pierre Abélard will be delivered in Paris on April 4, 5, 11, and 12 (2023), on the topic Construire la volonté. Yours truly will be giving these lectures, in French. (There is also talk of live-streaming the lectures.)

There’s a conference in Bonn this May on Scotism and Platonism: A New Appraisal (May 25-26, 2023).

Stockholm University is hosting a three-day conference in May on The Mechanization of the Natural World, 1300-1700 (May 25-28, 2023).

The Cohn Institute in Tel Aviv is sponsoring a hybrid workshop this June on Analogy and Justification in Premodern Science (June 21-22, 2023). The cfp deadline is March 31.

KU Leuven is holding a conference this fall on the Aristoteles Latinus: 1973-2023: Celebrating Half a Century of Aristoteles Latinus in Leuven” (October 25-27, 2023). The submission deadline was yesterday, March 15, but perhaps a grace period would be allowed.

I’ve recently discovered a popular essay by Yitzhak Melamed (Johns Hopkins), posted last fall, arguing that “it’s shocking that histories of medieval philosophy celebrate only Christian thinkers, ignoring Islamic and Jewish thought.” I suspect that this is a sentiment our field has already been persuaded of, for some years now, but this is perhaps a salutary reminder of something we need to practice in fact, not just endorse in principle.
