The SSEMP IV is the fourth edition of a yearly event that brings together established scholars, young researchers and advanced graduate students working in the field of Early Modern Philosophy. The aim is to foster scholarly exchange among the different generations of academics in the UK and to strengthen international collaboration. We welcome abstracts on any topic in pre-Kantian early modern philosophy (broadly defined, ranging from late Renaissance philosophy to the Enlightenment.) We particularly encourage proposals which consider early modern philosophy in relation to other related disciplines, such as theology, intellectual history and/or the history of science. Scholars abroad are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts. Presentations should be in English and approximately 45 minutes in reading length. We make an effort to assure a reasonable gender balance.

The event is organized by Beth Lord and Mogens Lærke. Abstracts (approx. 150 words) should be sent by email to Mogens Lærke on

Deadline for submission of abstracts is 1 February 2013.

Please note that the SSEMP cannot provide funding for travel or accommodation.
