Call for Papers

TURNING POINTS
3rd Biennial Conference of the International Society for Intellectual
History, The University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, USA, September
21-24, 2000.

As we contemplate the new milennium, we as intellectual historians are
inevitably drawn to contemplate "turning points" in intellectual history.
This will be the theme of our conference. We are looking for papers--about
thirty minutes in length--that deal with specific instances of intellectual
transition, real or imagined. We also welcome papers on the ideas of
novelty and transition, treated either historically or systematically.

Please submit a one-page abstract by March 20, 2000 at the following
address:

The Franke Institute for the Humanities
The University of Chicago
JRL, S-102
1100 East 57th St.
Chicago, IL 60637 USA

We prefer abstracts in English, but will accept them also in German or
French.

Co-chairs:

Daniel Garber
Professor of Philosophy,
Committee on the Conceptual Foundations of Science

J. Paul Hunter
Professor of English,
Director, Franke Institute for the Humanities
