CFP Scientiae 2019 deadline extended

In response to inquiries, the organisers are pleased to announce an extended deadline for proposals to the 2019 Scientiae conference (June 12-15th, Queen’s University, Belfast). Proposals will now be accepted until 25 January, 2019.

Scientiae is the interdisciplinary conference on intellectual culture, 1400-1800. It is centred on, but not limited to, developments in the early-modern natural sciences. Philosophers, historians, literary scholars and others are invited to share their perspectives on this vital period. Belfast 2019 will be our 8th annual meeting.

Our plenary speakers at Belfast will be Ingrid Rowland (Notre Dame/Rome) and Rob Iliffe (Oxford).

Scientiae 2019 will also feature two plenary panel sessions: One presented by Subha Mukherji (Cambridge) on “Forms of Knowing,” with Torrance Kirby (McGill), Sorana Corneanu (Bucharest) and Anupam Basu (Washington); and the other co-presented by Marco Sgarbi, Pietro Daniel Omodeo, and Craig Martin (all from Ca’ Foscari, Venice) on “Early-modern Aristotelianisms.”

Other confirmed speakers for Scientiae 2019 include: Raz Chen-Morris, Antonio Clericuzio, Alix Cooper, Peter Hess, Kevin Killeen, W.R. Laird, Nancy McLoughlin, Robert Morrison, Cesare Pastorino, and Vladimir Urbanek.

Proposals are invited for:

  • Individual (20-minute) papers: Please submit a descriptive title, 250-word abstract, and one-page CV.
  • Complete panels: Same as above for each paper, plus 150-word rationale for the panel. Maximum four panellists, plus chair (and/or respondent).
  • Workshops: One-page CV for each workshop leader, plus 250-word plan for the session: topic, techniques, hands-on resources, etc.
