Stéphane Marchand has let me know about this paper published last year:
Anne Gabrièle Wersinger, "La philosophie entre Logique et Musique. Sextus Empiricus et la diaphônia" (Discussion de quelques arguments de Jonathan Barnes), Revue de Métaphysique et de Morale 56 (2007): 499-519.
I haven't had the time to read this article yet, so I have no opinion about its quality. You can find it here.

As you may remember, in May I mentioned that, on November 8-9, there would be a another conference on skepticism organized by the NYU Department of Philosophy. Gianni Paganini has just let me know that the program is now complete. You can find it by clicking here. If you can, you should try to attend, since to all appearances it will be a great conference. The speakers and commentators include, among others, Paganini, Ernest Sosa, Robert Fogelin, Brian Leiter, Barry Stroud, and Catherine Wilson.
Update October 18: I forgot to say that all the papers will be posted here as they become available. So far you can find Leiter's paper on Nietzsche.

Stéphane Marchand and Olivier Renaut have created Zétesis, an excellent webpage devoted to ancient philosophy, and hence also to ancient skepticism. It is the site of the "Association de doctorants et de jeunes chercheurs en philosophie ancienne et en sciences de l'antiquité".

The book Ancient Philosophy of the Self (Springer, 2008), edited by Pauliina Remes and Juha Sihvola, features Richard Bett's "What Kind of Self Can a Greek Sceptic Have?". The online version of all the papers can be found here. I suppose that some of you may have access through your university network.

On October 6-10 will take place the “XIII Encontro Nacional de Filosofia” organized by the Associação Nacional de Pós-graduação em Filosofia (ANPOF) of Brazil. There will be many talks on skepticism, both from a historical and from a systematic perspective. You can find out about the talks in the program, which can be found here.
