International Conference on Skepticism in Hamburg

There is a Call for Papers for an International Conference on Scepticism, organized by the Maimonides Centre for Advanced Studies – Jewish Scepticism. The conference will be held on 8-11 May, 2017 at the University of Hamburg (Germany). The conference committee invites six young scholars (PhD candidates and postdocs) to participate in one of the two round-table discussions of the conference by giving a 20-minute lecture on a topic broadly related to scepticism, followed by 10–20 minutes of discussion and Q&A. The topics of the roundtables are: “Scepticism in Antiquity and the Middle Ages” (three lectures) and “Scepticism in (Early) Modern and Contemporary Times” (three lectures). All lectures should be based on current or future research projects.

PhD candidates or postdocs who wish to present papers are requested to submit a 200-word abstract and a CV until 15th October 2016 to the e-mail account listed below. Expenses for travel and accommodation will be covered by the Maimonides Centre for Advanced Studies.
