Seventh Biennial Conference
13-17 July 2020, Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil
Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais
Chair of Organizing Committee: Miriam Peixoto
The International Association for Presocratic Studies (IAPS, founded in 2008) announces its Seventh Biennial Conference. The meeting will take place at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, at Belo Horizonte (MG), Brazil, 13-17 July 2020.
IAPS understands “Presocratics” to be the figures for whom either fragments of their work or relevant testimonia are collected in Hermann Diels’ Die Fragmente der Vorsokratiker (6th edn. 1951, edited by Walther Kranz). IAPS welcomes presentations on philosophical, philological, textual, doxographical, scientific, historical, literary and religious topics having to do with the Presocratics, on connections between Presocratic thought and other figures (e.g., the Sophists) and other areas of intellectual activity (e.g., mathematics, medicine or music), and on the reception of Presocratic thought in antiquity and later times.
IAPS welcomes participation from scholars at all stages of their careers, from graduate students to senior figures in the field.
For every question or to receive further information about the conference, please send a message with the title “IAPS 7” to Prof. Miriam Peixoto.
