Bucharest Colloquium

Bucharest colloquium in Early Modern Philosophy
The Bucharest colloquium in Early Modern Philosophy is an annual event organised by FME with the collaboration with New Europe College, Bucharest and other scientific institutions around the world. Its purpose is to gather together for three days scholars of early modernity and students of early modern thought. The first edition of the colloquium, in 2008, was organised by a scientific committee from Princeton University, University of Otago, New Zeeland, and the University of Bucharest. The second edition is a result of a collaboration between New Europe College and the Research Centre of the History and Philosophy of Science, University of Bucharest (as part of a NEC-LINK grant). The main organiser of the colloquium is Dana Jalobeanu.
