CFP: “Leibniz: Legacy and Impact” (Manchester Metropolitan University, November 5, 2016)

We gladly announce that a call for papers has been opened for the international conference dedicated to the following topic: Leibniz: Legacy and Impact. The event will be held at the Manchester Metropolitan University on November 5th, 2016.


The Keynote Address will be given by Professor Nicholas Jolley (University of California, Irvine)

This conference aims to celebrate the legacy and impact of the universal genius Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716). Leibniz was a polymath who made significant contributions to many fields of learning, among them philosophy, science, mathematics, law, and the study of history and languages. But which of his innovations had the greatest impact in the years that followed? And how have his ideas shaped these disciplines today? These are the questions that will be the focus of this conference. The organizers invite papers that address these questions head on, and seek to show the extent and depth of Leibniz’s legacy and impact.

Abstracts for papers on these themes are welcomed. Abstracts should be no more than 500 words in length (those that exceed the word limit will not be considered) and prepared for blind review. Please include your name, affiliation and contact details in the body of your email. Abstracts in Microsoft Word or PDF format should be submitted to submissions@leibniz-translations.com by midnight on Sunday 28 February 2016.

Decisions on submissions will be relayed no later than Sunday 13 March 2016. Papers selected for presentation at the conference should be of a length suitable for delivery in 40 minutes, i.e. 4500 – 5000 words.
