We are delighted to announce the Inaugural meeting of the Hopkins Seminar in Medieval and Early Modern Philosophy that will take place at the Homewood Campus of Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, on December 10th-11th, 2023.

Like similar seminars, HSMEMP is an informal group, formed to foster the exchange of ideas among scholars of medieval and early modern philosophy (roughly, 400-1780 CE). We will accept abstracts of papers focusing solely on early modern philosophy, or solely on medieval philosophy, though we encourage submission of abstract exploring issues covering both periods. We also strongly encourage submission of abstracts on women philosophers, and non-European philosophy (Jewish, Islamic, Chinese, African, Indian etc.) of these periods. We are likely to have one of our sessions in a hybrid form.

Please submit anonymized abstracts (up to 1 page long) as an email attachment, sent to [email protected] . Include your name in your email, and the last 5 digits of your phone number on both the email and your abstract. If you would like to present your paper on zoom, please indicate that.  For further inquiries, please email [email protected]

Abstract submission deadline: October 10th, 2023

Invited speakers:  Daniel Garber (Princeton) and Qiu Lin (Simon Fraser University) 

The seminar’s program, directions, and accommodation information will be posted by October 24th, 2023.The organizers will cover lodging and food expenses, and we will make serious effort to cover at least part of the travel expenses of graduate students/recent Ph.D.s  whose papers are accepted for presentation.

Program committee: Patrick Connolly (Hopkins), Hao Dong (Hopkins), Hashem Morvarid (Hopkins), and Yitzhak Melamed (Hopkins).

The Seminar is supported be generous grants from the Philosophy Department and Singleton Center for the Study of Premodern Europe at Johns Hopkins University
