Paris, July 15th-20th 2019
The International Plato Society organizes a symposium on a single Platonic dialogue every three years. We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the XII Symposium Platonicum: Plato’s Parmenides.
The Symposium will take place July 15–20, 2019, in Paris. Although the dialogue has been the object of intense scholarly scrutiny, many issues remain to be explored. Submissions on any aspect of the dialogue, including its presocratic sources as well as later reception, will be considered. We also would like to encourage papers that address issues in the dialogue’s second half since it has received relatively less attention.
We welcome abstracts from all IPS members, full and associate. If you are not yet a member of the International Plato Society, criteria for membership and information about joining are available at: https://platosociety.org/m
If you intend to submit an abstract, please make sure that your IPS dues are paid for 2016–19 at least one week before making your submission. If you are unsure whether you are a member in good standing, check the status of your account on the website or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Papers should be suitable for 20-minute presentations, but authors may be asked to expand their papers to be presented at one of the 40-minute plenary sessions.
Your abstract should be 800–1200 words and written in any two of the Society’s five official languages (English, French, Italian, Spanish, or German). To ensure blind-review by the IPS Executive Committee please remove any identifying information from the abstract and the file properties. Any queries about the abstract should be sent to symposiumplatonicum12@gmail
All submissions must be received by September 30, 2018. Submitters will be notified of the Committee’s decision in January 2019.
