The Cusanus Society UK & Ireland is organizing sessions for the IMC Leeds 2020 (6-9 July).
Topics are welcome on any facet of the life and work of Nicholas of Cusa, including reform, mysticism, philosophy, theology, exegesis, conciliarism, mathematics, perceptions of Islam, etc. We also welcome proposals that focus on the context and influences on Cusanus, as well as his influence on contemporaries and subsequent generations. One particular area of interest could be on the theme Cusanus and the Friars, focusing on the influence of Franciscan, Dominican and Augustinian writers on the thought of Cusanus.
We are open to session proposals (of 3 papers) that fit these themes, as well as individual papers which we will organize into appropriate sessions.
Although the session submission deadline is 30 September, please submit any abstracts (100 words for a 20-minute paper) by 31 August, so that we have time to plan and organize sessions based upon the proposals received. Also, if you are willing to moderate a session, please contact us.
Please send abstracts/proposals to: email@example.com
