New Initiative: History of Philosophy Forum at the University of Notre Dame

Readers will be interested to hear about the following initiative. Thanks to Therese Scarpelli Cory, Director of the History of Philosophy Forum and John and Jean Oesterle Associate Professor of Thomistic Studies in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, for passing this on:

The Philosophy Department of the University of Notre Dame is pleased to announce the inauguration of the History of Philosophy Forum, for the purpose of facilitating research and collaboration among scholars working in the history of philosophy.  To that end, the History of Philosophy Forum (1) organizes an annual colloquium examining a philosophical theme across different periods in the history of philosophy, (2) hosts a Distinguished International Visitor each year, and (3) operates a “Small Grants Program,” supporting international scholars with research projects in the history of philosophy that could benefit from a short stay at the University of Notre Dame.

The 2020-2021 Call for Applications is now open for our Small Grants Program!  The program is open to all scholars working in the history of philosophy with primary affiliation at an institution outside the US.  A poster is attached.  More information about the program, as well as a link to submit the online application, can be found at  The submission deadline is February 7th, 2020.

For extra clarification: this program is for scholars who have received their PhD and are currently affiliated with an institution outside the United States. Award amounts are in the range of $1,400-$4,000, with 4-5 grants potentially available each year, and the funds may be used for travel and accommodation.

More information about the History of Philosophy Forum and its activities, including our inaugural colloquium on the theme “Philosophy Throughout Its History” (April 2021) can be found at our website:

Very exciting! I will be sharing relevant events from the Forum on the ancient philosophy calendar.
