THE RECEPTION OF PLATO IN LATE ANTIQUITY AND THE MIDDLE AGES
We are delighted to announce a 2-day conference, organized by the Department of Philosophy of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in collaboration with the Australian Research Council and Macquarie University, Australia on:
"THE RECEPTION OF PLATO IN LATE ANTIQUITY AND THE MIDDLE AGES"
The conference will take place at the NATIONAL AND KAPODISTRIAN UNIVERSITY OF ATHENS, 8-9 JUNE 2020.
We have collaborated with the ISNS conference organisers so to facilitate the participation of local and international delegates to both events, but please note that the two events are run independently. News about our conference can be found on the website: https://evanagno.wixsite.com/platoreception
Taking start from our common interest in the Platonic tradition and its reception in later periods, our collaboration has to date yielded one edited volume (The Neoplatonists and their Heirs, Brill, 2020, ed. Ken Parry and E. Anagnostou-Laoutides), while a second one is anticipated to host select papers from the conference. We now wish to expand our network of co-thinkers and thus, we welcome papers on any aspect of Platonic reception, both in the Byzantine East and the Latin West, in philosophical, literary and/or theological texts.
Confirmed Speakers include (in alphabetical order):
-Prof Dirk Baltzly (University of Tasmania)
-Prof Kevin Corrigan (Emory University)
-Prof Lloyd Gerson (Toronto University)
-Prof Ilaria Ramelli (Durham University/ “Angelicum” University/ Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Milan
