The Traveling Early Modern Philosophy Organization (TEMPO) is now accepting submissions for our June 18-19, 2021 conference to be held entirely online. Details, programs from past iterations, and other information can be found at http://tempo-conference.net

We welcome papers on any aspect of Modern philosophy, roughly understood as the period from Montaigne through Mill. 

Submissions on British philosophy after Hume are particularly encouraged. 


Andre C. Willis (Religious Studies, Brown University) and Emily Kelahan (Illinois Wesleyan) will give the keynote presentation, entitled “Hume, History and Monuments.”


Jane Austen, Philosopher

Tim Black (CSU Northridge) and Lauren Kopajtic (Fordham University), organizers, with Margaret Watkins (St. Vincent College)

Race & Slavery in Early Modern Philosophy

Dwight K. Lewis (organizer, University of Central Florida), Justin E.H. Smith (University of Paris)

We would also like to assemble a panel of papers treating either Hume’s relationship to rationalism (epistemic or moral) or the ancients (skeptical or stoic).

Please prepare 300-500 word abstracts for anonymous review and submit them through Easy Chair at http://tempo-conference.net/submit. Papers should be suitable for a 25 minute presentation, followed by 30 minutes of Q&A.

The deadline for submissions is March 1st, 2021. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by March 15th.

Please direct questions to richard.fry@rutgers.edu
