The Bucharest-Princeton Seminar is an annual interdisciplinary meeting of scholars and students of early modern thought. Its aim is to create a stimulating environment for discussing papers and ideas through formal and informal discussions, reading-groups and round tables. Morning sessions are organized as reading groups, while the afternoon sessions give participants an opportunity to discuss their own special interests with an open and sympathetic audience of students and scholars with broad interests in early modern philosophy and early modern science. Texts for the reading groups are distributed one month in advance.

Venue: This year, the seminar will take place in Bran, a small resort near Brasov, in Transylvania. We will travel together from Bucharest to Bran by bus. Participants are expected to arrive in Bucharest on June 27 and leave on July 5. In Bran, the group will be accommodated together, in Villa Andra (single and double rooms, some shared bathrooms).
