Princeton-Bucharest seminar in Early Modern Philosophy in Transylvania

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: Daniel Garber (Princeton University), Roger Ariew (University of South Florida), Ed Curley(University of Michigan), Frederic de Buzon (Universite de Strasbourg)

The Seminar will take place in Bran, a small resort near Brasov, in Transylvania. It will be hosted in a small, friendly Bed&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 1st of May to Dana Jalobeanu, and Vlad Alexandrescu

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 adresses as above ).
