CONFERENCE | 3rd Central European Graduate Conference in Ancient Philosophy

13-15 October 2022

The Third Central European Graduate Conference in Ancient Philosophy, hosted by the University of Vienna, continues a series of earlier conferences that took place at ELTE and CEU in Budapest (2017) and at Charles University in Prague (2019). The main aim of the conference is to bring together outstanding doctoral students based in the Central European region.

In response to their presentations, the students get feedback from excellent well-established scholars who work in their fields of research at one of the five CENTRAL partner universities. Each presentation and response is followed by an open discussion about the issues and questions raised. Not only does this connect scholars in the field of Ancient philosophy throughout the Central European academic institutions, but positions them in an international area of research and current philosophical debates. The conference format is explicitly interdisciplinary. This means that submissions of abstracts from different scholarly perspectives are highly welcomed, including Classics, History of Philosophy, Byzantine studies, and Paleography. The highlight of this international event will be the keynote lectures and workshops given by two of the most notable scholars in Central Europa, Dr. Laura M. Castelli (LMU Munich) and Prof. Dr. Riccardo Chiaradonna (Università degli studi di Roma Tre).
