CFP: Third Annual Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop in Ancient Philosophy

University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, May 7th, 2022

Keynote Speaker: Alan Code, Stanford University

The Program in Ancient Philosophy at the University of Michigan is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop in Ancient Philosophy. The workshop will take place in-person, and the event will be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan on May 7, 2022. We invite proposals from graduate students and early career faculty, on any topic in the field of ancient Greek and Roman philosophy. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the program at the University of Michigan, we welcome papers that involve a variety of approaches to the ancient texts, whether they be analytical, philological, literary, comparative, or historical. Each presenter will be given 25 minutes for oral presentation, which will be followed by 20 minutes of formal response and audience discussion. Please note as well that speakers will be expected to cover their own travel and lodging costs.

To submit a paper for consideration, please submit a single, PDF document containing a 300-500 word abstract on the "Abstract" section of the EasyChair submission page:

The document should be suitable for blind review (i.e. containing no identifying information), but the body of the email should contain your name, paper title, university affiliation and position. Abstracts are due no later than February 15, 2022. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by March 5, 2022. Full papers will be due to commentators by April 15, 2022.
