Émilie Du Châtelet’s Foundations of Physics
A Conference Celebrating the Complete English Translation
April 26th–28th, 2018
McKenna Hall, Notre Dame Conference Center
In 2009, Isabelle Bour and Judith Zinsser published a partial translation of Émilie Du Châtelet’s Foundations of Physics. Since 2014, faculty and students at the University of Notre Dame have worked to complete the translation, the completion of which they will celebrate at a conference April 26-28.
The conference will feature talks, presentations, and discussions of the text, its philosophical and historical context and significance, and ways of incorporating Du Châtelet’s philosophy into undergraduate teaching.
