Contemporary and Medieval Social Ontologies
14-16 March 2019, Bonn University

In The Construction of Social Reality (New York 1995) and Making the Social World. The Structure of Human Civilization (New York 2010), John Searle instigated the emergence of social ontology as a vital part of contemporary analytic philosophy. But a cursory glance at medieval debates reveals that many texts written between the thirteenth and sixteenth centuries dealt with the ontology of the social world in one way or another. Of course, medieval authors did not use the term “social ontology,” but they discussed the mode of existence of money, ownership, law, contracts, promises, language, communities and institutions, etc. That medieval authors were aware of and interested in questions concerning the reality of the social world gives rise to the guiding question of this conference: how do medieval and modern authors conceive of the mode of being of social objects and institutions? With this end in mind, we are looking for abstracts for papers from both historians of medieval philosophy (historians of late ancient philosophy and second scholasticism are welcome as well) and contemporary philosophers to participate in a fruitful exchange.

Deadline for abstracts: 30 July 2018
Deadline for notification: 15 August 2018

Confirmed speakers:
Laurent Cesalli (University of Geneva), Margaret Cameron (University of Victoria), Markus Gabriel (Bonn University), Fabrizio Amerini (University of Parma), Bill Duba (University of Fribourg), Roberto Lambertini (University of Macerata), Christoph Horn (Bonn University), Barry Smith (University at Buffalo), Ludger Jansen (Bochum University), Ruth Hagengruber (University of Paderhorn), Danae Simmermacher (University of Halle-Wittenberg)

The Mereology of Potentiality

Research project funded by the Leverhulme Trust
Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral position within a research group led by Professor Anna Marmodoro, and supported by the Leverhulme Trust, to work on parts-whole relations within potentiality.  
The project will be carried out by a team of four researchers, specialising in metaphysics and philosophy of physics, with the goal of pioneering a ‘double first’ in metaphysics: i) the study of the parts and the structure of potentiality; and ii) the study of the unlimited division of potentiality. The project will explore a new understanding of the nature of potentiality, and develop a typology of parthood for the potentialities that populate and interconnect systems of powers in nature.
The position is full-time for two years (the overall duration of the project is three years). The post-holder will have opportunities for collaborative and independent research, and engagement in a wide range of research activities. Further particulars are available here The deadline for applying is *Monday 2 July 2018*.
The project’s website is currently under development. For more information about the project and its research activities please contact the project Director at

British Academy Global Professorships 2018
The British Academy is providing mid-career to senior scholars - active in any discipline within the social sciences and the humanities and based in any country overseas - with the opportunity to work for four years in the UK and make a contribution to UK research and higher education. This new programme is supported under the UK Government’s National Productivity Investment Fund. It aims to demonstrate and further enhance the UK’s commitment to international research partnerships and collaboration as well as strengthen the UK’s research capacity and capability in the humanities and the social sciences.
Up to 10 Global Professorships each year will be offered during the course of the programme (which will run for three years in the first instance). Each award will provide funding for four years to an outstanding international researcher, not currently working in the United Kingdom, to bring their research experience to the UK. The purpose of the Global Professorships is to enable world-class scholars to further their individual research goals while strengthening the UK research base and advancing the research goals and strategies of their UK host universities. Each four-year appointment is intended to be a complete project in itself and is expected to involve a specific research focus, although the British Academy does not have a preferred model for the balance of time to be spent between research and teaching (which may vary over the course of the award and will depend on the UK host institution’s needs).
Eligibility Requirements
Suitable candidates for the Global Professorships include internationally-recognised mid-career to senior researchers active in any field within the social sciences or the humanities who are currently employed outside the UK. The applicant must either be in a permanent (full-time or part-time) position at their home institution overseas or have a fixed-term position for the duration of the Global Professorship. Applicants must be available to take up a long-term secondment or employment at an eligible UK university or research institution.
Value and Duration
Awards are expected to run for four years each. The British Academy will provide up to £250,000 per annum for the first three years, making a total contribution of £750,000 per award. The costs of the fourth year will be expected to be committed in full by the UK host institution. Successful applicants to the 2018 competition will be required to start their awards between 1 December 2018 and 31 May 2019.
Application Process
Applications must be submitted online using the British Academy's Grant Management System, Flexi-Grant®
Application Deadline: Wednesday 12 September 2018 (17.00 UK Time)
UK Host Institution Approval Deadline: Thursday 13 September 2018 (17.00 UK Time)

Mensaje de la presidenta de FIDEM

Chers Collègues et amis,
comme vous le savez, du 2 au 5 septembre prochain, le Congrès quinquennal de la FIDEM aura lieu à Bâle.
Il s'agit d'une occasion importante pour se retrover et discuter de l'actualité, mais aussi du futur de nos Institutions et de nos disciplines qui, depuis quelques temps, vivent des moments particulièrement difficiles dans toute l'Europe.
Je voudrais attirer votre attention sur le fait que pendant notre Congrès se tiendra, aussi, outre les communications habituelles, l'Assemblée Générale des membres de la FIDEM, qui auront droit de vote uniquement s'ils sont en ordre de cotisation. 
En outre, aura lieu l'élection de nouveaux titulaires qui occuperont quelques charges importantes.  
En particulier, seront élus: le nouveau Président de la FIDEM (en effet, j'abandonnerai ma longue présidence), ainsi que 3 nouveaux membres du Comité, comprenant le nouveau Coordinateur du Diplôme Européen d'études Médiévales. En effet ils ont siégé pendant deux mandats et sont donc automatiquement démissionaires. Il s'agit de Greti Dinkova-Bruun et de María José Muñoz Jiménez. Quant à Giacinta Spinosa, ella a choisi de se retirer après un mandat.
Je suis persuadée que vous comprendrez l'importance du soutien à apporter à la FIDEM qui nécessite actuellement un engagement important, vital pour permettre la bonne continuation de nos études et leur diffusion dans le monde culturel contemporain.
En vous disant au-revoir, je voudrais vous remercier pour l'attachement et la fidélité que vous avez accordé jusqu'à aujourd'hui, en défendant nos études et en promouvant la recherche, donnant des cours pour ne pas oublier le passé, mais surtout pour faire en sorte qu'il s'agisse d'un enseignement valable pour le futur.
Veuillez agréer, Chers Collègues et amis, l'expression de mes salutations les meilleures,
 Jacqueline Hamesse
 Président de la FIDEM
