Aristotle Beyond the Academy

26th-27th March 2025 - Milestones in Aristotle's Public Reception, Durham University


Offers are invited of papers to be delivered at a conference entitled 'Milestones in Aristotle’s Public Reception'. It will be convened by the Leverhulme-funded project Aristotle beyond the Academy, based in the Centre for Classical Reception and the Centre for Ancient and Medieval Philosophy at the University of Durham, on March 25th-26th 2025.

The project asks how, where and why Aristotle has made cultural appearances in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales since the Restoration (1660). The project’s three researchers (Edith Hall, Peter Swallow and Arlene Holmes-Henderson) focus primarily on the areas of ethics, law and politics, rhetoric, and natural science.

The conference, however, may include contributions on the reception of Aristotle from 1660 to the present day internationally, on any topic, in any medium or genre except specialist academic writing.

Please submit abstracts of up to 400 words by June 30th 2024 to the Principal Investigator, edith.hall@durham.ac.uk.
