CfP: RSA Toronto 2019: Renaissance Philosophy

Papers and/or panels on Renaissance Philosophy are invited for the 65th Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America (17-19 March 2019) in Toronto, Canada. Although papers on all aspects of Renaissance philosophy and thought will be considered, preference will be given to those focusing on one or more of the following topics:
-ethics and politics (in particular, how the ties between these two areas shift during the period in question)
 -philosophy across languages (including the rise of philosophy in the vernacular; the relationship of vernacular philosophy to that produced in other vernaculars or in Hebrew, Arabic, Greek, Latin; issues of “translation” in philosophy)
 -philosophy and literature
 -Aristotelianism and anti-Aristotelianism (including the Plato–Aristotle controversy)
 -intersections between philosophy and history of the book
We aim for a good chronological and geographical spread where possible and appropriate.
Proposals for papers should include:
-       the presenter’s name, academic affiliation, email address
-       the paper title (up to 15 words)
-       a paper abstract (up to 150 words)
-       a tabular academic CV (up to 300 words; indicate date of PhD)
-       up to four keywords
