We invite scholars and students to submit abstracts regarding any aspect of Presocratic thought, in the following format:
A two-page proposal for a twenty-minute talk (followed by a ten-minute discussion) should be sent in pdf format to: [email protected]. The subject line of the message should be “IAPS 8 Proposal”.
The first page of the proposal should be a cover page containing the following information:
● Name (as you would like it to appear in the program)
● Position (e.g., Graduate Student, Independent Scholar,
● Country (location of residence, work, self-identification)
The second page should contain the title and the abstract (max. 300 words) in English. Unicode fonts should be used, to avoid problems in rendering Greek or other non-Latin characters. To ensure anonymity in the refereeing process, do not put your name on this page.
Submitted abstracts will be blind-reviewed by a committee appointed by the Council of IAPS. The decision of the committee will be communicated via e-mail.
1. Deadline for the submission of abstracts: November 30th, 2023.
2. Communication of decision of the IAPS committee: January 15th, 2024.
While you are free to give your talk in English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish. Keep in mind that not everybody can follow a fast-paced, argument-packed lecture in all of them. In order to be inclusive, and to receive as much engagement as possible, we suggest that you prepare one handout in English.
