This “Reading Party” looks to be strictly in ancient philosophy, but I take it that it might be of interest for some regular visitors to this blog.
Call for papers: Aristotle Reading Party 2013. Energeia and dunamis in Metaphysics Theta
29 April to 1 May 2013, University of St Andrews, UK
Submission Deadline: 21 January 2013
The Aristotle Reading Party is both a graduate conference and a reading event. In our six reading sessions, each introduced by a distinguished scholar, we will discuss the dichotomy of energeia (actuality) and dunamis (potentiality) informed by a close reading of Metaphysics Theta 1-10. We will finish with a final session on Physics Gamma 1-3, in which change is defined in terms of energeia and dunamis.
We invite graduate students to submit papers on any topic related to Aristotle’s distinction between energeia and dunamis. Submissions can be either directly on Metaphysics Theta or on any related topic such as change, soul, happiness or mathematical objects. Extended abstracts should not exceed 1,000 words (or 35 minutes presentation time) and should be prepared for blind review. The abstract must have no identifying information. Abstracts should be submitted as a PDF file via https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=arp2013 A call for participation for the remaining places will be made in February 2013.
The event will take place from 29 April to 1 May 2013 at the Burn House in Angus (http://www.goodenough.ac.uk/the_burn0.html). Transport from St Andrews will be organised. Thanks to generous support by the Aristotelian Society, GRADskills Innovation grant (University of St Andrews), Mind Association and Scots Philosophical Association the costs for accommodation at the Burn House (full board for two nights) will be fully covered for successful applicants.
