Pacific Northwest-Western Canada Seminar

Pacific Northwest/Western Canada Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy
meeting at
Simon Fraser University
Vancouver, BC Canada
November 5-7, 2010

The meeting of the Pacific Northwest/Western Canada Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy will be held at Simon Fraser University over the weekend of 5-7 November 2010. This year, Dominik Perler (Humbolt Universitat – Berlin) and Lilli Alanen (Uppsala University, Sweden) will be keynote speakers.

As with other Seminars in Early Modern Philosophy, papers on any subject in early modern philosophy (roughly, the period from Montaigne to Kant) are welcome. We particularly encourage papers which suggest new or less frequently discussed topics, themes, and critical approaches to the history of modern philosophy, discuss and familiarize the group with new texts, or deploy an interdisciplinary approach. Submitted abstracts are peer reviewed anonymously. Reading time of papers should be approximately 45 minutes.

Submissions: Please send an abstract of no more than 600 words by September 13, 2010. Abstracts should not contain identifying information, which should appear on a separate cover page. We prefer that abstracts be sent electronically by attachment in MS Word or PDF format to: Lisa Shapiro []

Email submissions are very strongly encouraged. However, alternatively, abstracts may be sent by hardcopy to:

Details on the program and accommodations will be available in early October.
