ANNOUNCEMENT: THE BUCHAREST-PRINCETON SEMINAR

IN EARLY MODERN PHILOSOPHY

July 25-31, 2009 [NOTE CHANGE IN DATES]

The *Bucharest-Princeton Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy* is an 
international annual meeting of scholars interested in various aspects of early 
modern thought. The aim of the seminar is to create a stimulating environment 
for discussing papers and ideas. Traditionally, the seminar has two 
components: morning reading groups and afternoon discussions of work-in-
progress. This year, the topic for the morning sessions will be 
Spinoza’s /Tractatus theologico-politicus/. In addition to this we are inviting 
papers on all aspects of early modern philosophy/early modern science. The 
languages of the seminar are English and French.

Invited speakers include: Daniel Garber (Princeton University), Roger Ariew 
(University of South Florida), Ed Curley(University of Michigan), Frederic de 
Buzon (Université de Strasbourg), Pina Totero (Rome), Martin Lin (Rutgers) 
and Alan Gabbey (Barnard College/Columbia University). Others may be added 
later.

The Seminar will take place in Bran, a small resort near Brasov, in 
Transylvania. It will be hosted in a small, friendly Bed and Breakfast (single or 
double rooms). The participation fee is 120 Euros for faculty and 60 Euros for 
students (covering accomodation with breakfast and some of the meals).

To apply, send a CV and a 1 page abstract by May 15 to Dana Jalobeanu, 
[log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> and Vlad 
Alexandrescu [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> .

A limited number of “grants” are available for students to cover the costs of 
the participation fee and transportation from Bucharest to Bran (to apply for a 
grant send a CV, 1 page description of your research project and a letter of 
support/recommendation to the same email addresses as above ).
