We invite submissions by female graduate students and early career researchers (within five years of completion of their PhD) for the 5th Ancient Philosophy Workshop to be held on April 14-15, 2020 at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. This workshop is organised by Women in Ancient Philosophy and sponsored by the Research Training Group Philosophy, Science and the Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Our goal is to provide young and highly talented female philosophers and classicists with the opportunity to present their work and interact with each other.

Papers should be about 5000 words long. They can treat any topic in Ancient Philosophy; we aim to put together a selection of Presocratic, Platonic, Aristotelian, Hellenistic, and Roman Philosophy. Papers will be blind-reviewed.

Format of the workshop: this is a pre-read conference; sessions last 75 minutes (15 minutes summary of the paper + 60 minutes discussion). Accommodation and travel expenses up to 600 Euro will be covered for all speakers.

Keynote Speaker: Rachel Barney (University of Toronto)

The submission deadline is: 1st December 2019.

Please send the following to in .pdf format:

(1) A cover letter that contains (a) the author’s name, (b) institutional affiliation, (c) contact information, (d) the title of the paper, (e) a word count;
(2) The paper itself (around 5000 words including footnotes), including the title and a short abstract (no more than 250 words), with no information identifying the author or the author’s institutional affiliation.
