Caterina Tarlazzi (Ca’ Foscari University of Venice) is searching for three postdoc positions related to her ERC Starting Grant, “Polyphonic Philosophy: Logic in the Long Twelfth Century for a New Horizon in the History of Philosophy.” Details can be found here. The positions begin September 1, 2022. The application deadline is June 10.
John P. McCaskey (Fordham) is looking to hire a research assistant to translate into English al-Fārābī’s untranslated writings on induction (a total of about twenty pages of tenth-century Arabic). He asks that anyone qualified and interested contact him at email@example.com.
Gyula Klima (Fordham) has founded a new group, the Society for the European History of Ideas, which be holding a hybrid conference in Lisbon this summer (August 1-5, 2022) on the topic First Principles: Semantic, Metaphysical, Theological.
Another Klima project, the Society for Medieval Logic and Metaphysics, is organizing a session on medieval logic for the ACPA (New Orleans, Nov. 17-20, 2022). If you’ve never been to New Orleans, you should seriously consider putting in a proposal either for this session (cfp deadline May 18; contact firstname.lastname@example.org) or some other session (see ACPA website).
Another nice place to visit is Denver (just down the road from me), and that will be the location for the Central Division meeting of the APA (Feb. 22-25, 2023). I wouldn’t ordinarily mention an APA meeting, but I’m on the program committee, and so proposals in medieval philosophy can be assured of getting serious consideration. (Cfp deadline is June 1. Submit here.)
Congratulations to the above-mentioned Caterina Tarlazzi for winning the annual BJHP prize for best article, for her paper “The Debate over Universals in the Time of Peter Abelard.” Medievalists nearly swept the honors there: Jordan Lavender (Notre Dame) won the best-graduate-essay prize for “The Mark of the Mental in the Fourteenth Century.”
Thomas Williams (South Florida) has accepted the Martin Chair in Medieval Philosophy at Georgetown University, where he will start this fall. Plans are in the works for an inaugural Martin Chair conference.
