Young Researchers Conference on Classical German Philosophy; CFP deadline


Young Researchers Conference on Classical German Philosophy
Centre for German Idealism

VU University Amsterdam, August 27, 2010, Room 13A-11/13.

The Dutch-Flemish Centre for German Idealism (‘Centrum voor Duits Idealisme’) invites PhD students, research master students aiming at starting a PhD project soon and PhDs that have graduated recently to submit a proposal for a presentation at the ‘Young Researchers Conference on Classical German Philosophy’ to be held in Amsterdam on August 27, 2010. The conference aims to offer young researchers the opportunity to communicate their results to a larger community, and for all researchers in the fields to meet and reinforce scientific and personal links.

Presentations should concern Classical German Philosophy from Kant to Hegel, possibly in contrast to or comparison with other thinkers. Their aim should be systematic rather than merely historical-philological.

Presentations should be in English (20 minutes). Presentation will be commented upon by a senior member of the Centre for German Idealism, after which discussion will follow.

Submission deadline of the proposal: May 1, 2010. Proposals (PDF) should contain an abstract of ca. 500 words and a CV. Submissions can be sent to j.t.zinkstok(at) Notification of selection before May 15; papers must be delivered by June 15, 2010.
