Dear NANS Friends,
I am pleased to announce that plans are rapidly advancing for the next biennial NANS conference, which will be held at Stanford University on October 5-6, 2018. A call for abstracts is attached. We are very excited to be anticipating keynote lectures from Jessica Berry (Georgia State) and Alexander Nehamas (Princeton) at the meeting. Paul Katsafanas (Boston) has stepped up to chair the program committee for the event, and we are looking forward to a terrific and intellectually stimulating meeting. I hope to see you all here in the Fall.
In the mean time, you can find the most up-to-date information about the conference as it becomes available here, and bring your membership in the Society up to date here. Dues remain modest ($20 for fully employed members; $10 for students, independent scholars, and retired colleagues), but the resources your dues provide are essential to our ability to mount events like the upcoming conference. All dues and any donations to forward the work of the Society are tax deductible (at least until the law changes; Act Now!).
I also hope to see many of you at this year’s Eastern Division Meetings of the APA in Savannah, GA. We are sponsoring a terrific session at the Savannah meetings: Aaron Ridley will speak on “Nietzsche: the Self Expressed,” and we will also hear comments on the talk by Lisa Hicks. I am looking forward to an extremely stimulating discussion.
Best wishes to all for a productive Winter, and safe travels to our two upcoming meetings,
