About the summer school
Built on the success of the previous 2015 edition, the Groningen Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Thought is pleased to announce the second edition of the Collegium Spinozanum, which will take place at the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Groningen from 4 to 7 July 2017.
This Summer School aims to bring together advanced students and established scholars working broadly on Spinoza’s thought, sources and reception. The goal of the Summer School is to create an international forum to stimulate scholarly exchange and conversations inspired by different approaches and methodologies.
During morning sessions, established scholars in several different areas of Spinoza studies will offer seminars on some of the frontier research topics in the field. Afternoon sessions will consist of discussions of selected papers presented by participants and reading groups on short texts belonging to Spinoza’s works, or significant for the reception of Spinoza’s philosophy.
Scholarships and fee waivers are available.
No financial help can be provided to support travel expenses and accommodation. Accommodation in an international student house (6 nights, from Sunday 2 July to Saturday 8 July) is available for the special rate of 235 euros.
