Details

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. 

Keynote:

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

Panels:

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.
