CFA: SIEPM Congress 2022

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
SIEPM Congress 2022

The Roger Bacon Research Society is willing to propose two panels for the SIEPM congress which will be held in Paris from 22-26 August 2022.

The congress will focus on “La pensée radicale au Moyen Âge / Radical thinking in the Middle Ages”. Accordingly, our two panels (3 people + chair) will expand on Bacon’s radical positions.

If you would like to participate and give a talk on instantiations of Bacon’s radicalism in his theories, criticism, and methods, please, send your proposal to Meagan Allen (mallen@sciencehistory.org) by 10 October 2021.

Submitted proposals should follow the SIEPM requirements available at the following link.

As always, we keep at your disposal for any questions you might have. You can also reach us at secretary.rbrs@gmail.com
