Virtual Philosophy Colloquia

“I’m trying to create, in my own little word, a network of virtual colloquia and workshops for people stuck at home.”

[with apologies to Giotto]

That’s Robert Pasnau, professor of philosophy at the University of Colorado, whose “own little world” is the world of medieval philosophy. He wrote in to share the news that he is now putting on a series of virtual colloquia in medieval philosophy. The first “Virtual Medieval Colloquium”, which took place last Thursday, featured Eleonore Stump (St. Louis University). The next one is this Thursday and will feature Peter Adamson (LMU Munich).

The colloquia take place over the videoconferencing platform Zoom, and are recorded. They’re hosted by the Institut d’Etudes Avancées de Paris.

It’s a great idea. If you’re aware of other similar initiatives, please let us know in the comments.

Professor Pasnau is also putting together a network of students who are writing PhD dissertations in medieval philosophy so they can set up virtual dissertation workshops. For more details, see his blog, In medias PHIL.
