We are pleased to announce a call for papers for the 14th Nordic Workshop in Early Modern Philosophy (NWEMP 14). The workshop will take place at the University of Tartu on 28.–29. September 2024.

The purpose of the NWEMP is to foster collaboration between scholars and advanced students of early modern philosophy in the Nordic region. Launched in Tartu in 2008, NWEMP has been hosted by many of the top universities in the region.

This year the keynote lectures will be given by

Henrik Lagerlund (Stockholm University): “Francisco Suárez on Free Will and doing Evil for the sake of Evil” and

Eva Piirimäe (University of Tartu): "The Politics of Metamorphosis versus Palingenesis in the German Enlightenment".

The presentations will be supplemented with book presentations by Francesco Orsi (“The Guise of the Good”, 2023) and Eva Piirimäe (“Herder and Enlightenment Politics”, 2023). In addition, there will be a commemoration of the 300. anniversary of the birth of Immanuel Kant, given his connections to Tartu.

Please send a title and a short abstract (ca 200 words) on any topic in early modern philosophy to [email protected] by the 1st of June. We kindly ask you to send your submission as a PDF file attachment and render it anonymous for blind review. Applicants will be notified in early July at the latest.

NB! Please forward the call to persons you believe might be interested in participating, PhD researchers are especially welcome. Note that like in previous years, the organizers are not able to cover travel, accommodation or meal expenses.

We hope to see you in Tartu in September!
