Call for abstracts: ‘Philosophy and religion in ancient Greece and the Islamic world’ workshop (University of St Andrews)

Call for abstracts: ‘Philosophy and religion in ancient Greece and the Islamic world’

Monday 25 April 2022

Organizers: Olaf Almqvist ([email protected]) and Alex Long ([email protected])

 

The School of Classics at St Andrews will hold a one-day workshop on the interface between philosophy and religion in the ancient Greek and Islamic worlds.

Confirmed speakers:  Peter Adamson, LMU; Olaf Almqvist, St Andrews; Fedor Benevich, Edinburgh; Feriel Bouhafa, Cambridge; Tom Harrison, St Andrews.

 

We are inviting abstracts of no more than 200 words from current postgraduate students for a 30-minute talk at the workshop. Please send abstracts to Alex Long ([email protected]) before Friday 11 February 2022. We are currently planning to hold the event in person and will cover the costs (one or two nights’ accommodation, dinner after the workshop, travel within the UK) of the successful applicant if they are unable to claim reimbursement from their own institution. We particularly encourage abstracts from female and BAME students, as well as from students at universities with a comparatively small programme in Greek/Islamic philosophy. Please direct queries to Alex Long.

 

We are grateful to the Classical Association and the School of Classics for providing funding for the event.
