CFP : An Aristotle Brithday Party !
CALL FOR PAPERS : An Aristotle Birthday Party!
39th ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY WORKSHOP FEBRUARY 19-20, 2016
KEYNOTE: David Charles, Yale University
The Philosophy Department and the Department of Classical Studies at Rice University are pleased to announce that the 39th annual Ancient Philosophy Workshop will be held this coming academic year in Houston. This year’s Workshop will be a birthday party: In honor of his 2400th birthday, the Workshop will be devoted to Aristotle. Workshop sessions will begin on Friday morning, February 19, and conclude Saturday evening, February 20. Each paper will be allotted thirty minutes for oral presentation in order to allow for both a prepared response and open discussion.
Papers on any aspect of Aristotle’s philosophy are welcome, including its reception. The Workshop has a tradition of encouraging the presentation of work-in-progress by junior scholars. Accordingly, while the initial evaluation of proposals will be based on blind reviewing, in constructing the program, preference may be given, ceteris paribus, to junior scholars. Moreover, some consideration will be given to appropriate thematic clustering.
Respondents/commentators. There will be respondents/commentators for most of the presentations at the Workshop. Authors whose submitted proposals are not selected for presentation may be invited to serve as respondents/commentators. Those who would like to be considered as respondent/commentator only are also invited to contact the organizers (please provide a short description of your areas of interest).
Instructions for proposals. Anyone who would like to present a paper is invited to submit an abstract for consideration by the Program Committee. To allow time for both response and discussion, papers should not exceed 30-40 minutes reading/presentation time (about 5000 words). It will be assumed that the paper is close to its final form, within the indicated limits, when the proposal is submitted. To propose a paper, send a 1-page abstract of 300-500 words to firstname.lastname@example.org under the subject heading “Workshop proposal.” Please provide your contact information in the email but no identifying information in the abstract itself.
Proposals are due no later than Friday, October 30, 2015. Proposers will be notified of selections by November 20, 2015.
Papers will be due to respondents by Friday, January 22, 2016. Proposals or questions to Donald Morrison, email@example.com.
