Journal of the History of Philosophy Summer Seminar: “Ancient Origins of Renaissance and Early Modern Feminism”
Dates: May 15 – May 19, 2023
Location: McGill University, Montreal
Contact: Prof. Mariska Leunissen ([email protected])
Deadline: February 15, 2023
Description: Mindful of the challenges facing young scholars working in the history of philosophy, the Board of Directors of the Journal of the History of Philosophy has established a Summer Seminar in the History of Philosophy. The central idea of the program is that a senior scholar who works primarily in some area of the history of philosophy would undertake to direct an intensive week of summer classes for the benefit of a small group of recent PhDs whose main research and teaching are in the relevant area. Normally, the classes will focus on one or more texts that are typically not part of material that the participants would have studied as graduate students. The goal of the program is the enhancement of the expertise and understanding of the young scholars in their area of specialization. The JHP will select up to six individuals from among those who apply to participate in five days of intense classes on the announced subject. All travel and housing and food for the duration of the classes will be paid by the JHP up to $1,750.
The topic for the upcoming summer program is “Ancient Origins of Renaissance and Early Modern Feminism.” The history of feminist philosophy often begins in the late 17th century, neglecting important earlier works. This seminar will focus on a feminist work from 1601, Lucrezia Marinella’s La nobiltà et l’eccellenza delle donne co’ diffetti et mancamenti de gli uomini (The Nobility and Excellence of Women and the Defects and Vices of Men), with two aims in mind. The first is to consider the ancient sources of Marinella’s arguments, and their transmission and transformation in Renaissance and early modern pro-woman works. The second is to consider how the concepts that emerged from this reworking of ancient sources, e.g. dignity, rationality, liberty, body, virtue, were foundational to later feminist projects.  A third aim is methodological: to explore research (and teaching) with non-academic works and genres usually excluded from philosophy. This seminar will be useful to those interested in the history of feminist philosophy, in the reception of ancient philosophy in the Renaissance, and in the development of egalitarian concepts. The readings will be available in English, but any knowledge of Italian, Greek, or Latin will be helpful.

Summer Training Program to Expand the AI and Data Ethics Research Community
Dates: early June through mid-August
Location: Boston
Contact information: John Basl [email protected]
Application Deadline: January 10th
This summer school is intended for graduate students with advanced training in applied ethics, ethical theory, philosophy of science, or other areas with potential research applications to AI and big data who would like to develop research capacities in the ethics of artificial intelligence (AI), data ethics, and the philosophy of technology. Designing AI and machine learning systems to promote human flourishing in just and sustainable ways will require a robust and diverse AI and data ethics research community. However, there are few graduate programs that train students in these areas. The aim of this summer long, in person training program is to supplement resources in students’ home universities with ethical and technical skills necessary to research in this area.
Oxford Global Priorities FellowshipDates: 12 June – 7 July 2023
Location: Oxford, UK
Contact information: Christian Panzer (gpi-office @
Application deadline: 15 January 2023 (midnight UK time)
Description: The fellowship aims to support graduate students (Master and PhD) and early-career post-doctoral researchers in philosophy and economics in contributing to global priorities research, with a particular focus on issues of relevance to improving the well-being of future generations over the very long term.
Fellows will participate in the Global Priorities Fellowship Programme. The programme takes place in Oxford for four weeks in the summer of 2023 (12 June – 7 July) and participants will have the opportunity to develop a new research project under the guidance of a supervisor and to learn more about global priorities research in the course of developing their project. Each participant will focus on developing a research proposal, outlining a plan for a research project on a topic of central importance to the question of how to do good effectively. Topics for these research projects may be taken from the Global Priorities Institute’s (GPI) research agenda, although participants are also encouraged to pursue other projects that are consistent with GPI’s vision and mission.
The programme will end with a workshop at which participants present these proposals to one another and receive feedback on their plans. Participants are encouraged to continue their proposed course of research following the programme’s end and to meet with their supervisor sometime during the course of the next year. Participants who complete their research project or a closely related research project inspired by their experience in the programme will have the opportunity to present their research at GPI’s June workshop the following year. A prize will be awarded for the best such paper. All participants will be invited to a reunion event to coincide with the June workshop in the following year. This will give participants a chance to reconnect with GPI staff and their Fellowship cohort, see and discuss the research that has been done over the past year, and meet the next Oxford Global Priorities Fellows cohort.
Unless they are no longer pursuing graduate study, all fellows will also receive a stipend of GBP 5,000.
