Building on the success of the previous 2014–2019 editions, the seminar offers workshop-style collaborations in order to stimulate scholarly exchange. The seminar hosts 10 papers selected through the call for papers, and 2 lectures by the keynote speakers. The language of presentation and discussion is English.

Call for papers
We welcome talks on any topic related to early modern philosophy, broadly understood (roughly the period 1500–1800 CE). We are especially interested in presentations that discuss philosophical issues or works that have received less sustained scholarly attention, including, but not limited to: non-canonical authors and traditions, anonymous texts, and methodological reflections on doing early modern philosophy. 

Please submit abstracts (500 words max.) prepared for anonymous review to our EasyChair page

Deadline: 19 January 2020 (11:59pm Amsterdam time)

Decisions will follow by mid-March. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed. We will send reviewers’ reports with feedback on abstracts to all who wish to receive this.

Attendance is free and all are welcome. Please note that no financial assistance can be provided to support travel expenses and accommodation for participants.
