Southwest Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy
University of New Mexico
Featuring Invited Speaker:
University of Wisconsin, Madison
We are pleased to announce that the fifth annual meeting of the Southwest Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy will be held 27 - 28 February 2010 at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM. Following the model of similar seminars around the U.S. and Canada, the Southwest Seminar was formed to foster interaction among scholars who work on various topics in the history of early modern philosophy (a period ranging, roughly, from Montaigne to Kant).
We are pleased to announce the program for the fifth annual meeting of the Southwest Seminar.
There is no registration fee for the Southwest Seminar, though we do ask that those who plan on attending to please contact the local organizer, Mary Domski (firstname.lastname@example.org), no later than 1 February. Please indicate which days you plan to be in attendance. If you are interested in attending the conference dinner, we suggest contacting Mary by mid-January, since space at this event will be limited.
