We are glad to announce the Eighth Biennial Conference of the International Association for Presocratic Studies.

The meeting will take place at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil 1-5 July 2024.

IAPS understands “Presocratics” to be the figures for whom either fragments of their work or relevant testimonia are collected in Hermann Diels’ Die Fragmente der Vorsokratiker (6th edn. 1951, edited by Walther Kranz). IAPS welcomes presentations on philosophical, philological, textual, doxographical, scientific, historical, literary and religious topics having to do with the Presocratics, on connections between Presocratic thought and other figures and areas of intellectual activity (e.g., mathematics, medicine or music), and on the reception of Presocratic thought in antiquity and later times. IAPS welcomes participation from scholars at all stages of their careers, from graduate students to senior figures in the field.
