About us

The Princeton-Bucharest Seminar is moving online! The seminar was established 19 years ago by Dana Jalobeanu, Vlad Alexandrescu and Dan Garber. We have met every summer since in the mountains of Transylvania and the seminar has gradually evolved into an institution, with a reputation for both academic rigor and cordiality. In recent years, we were co-sponsored by the Philosophy Department at Princeton and the Institute for Research in the Humanities (ICUB) at the University of Bucharest.

A more detailed history of the Princeton-Bucharest Seminar, including the programs of past editions, is available on this page. You can also watch Dan Garber give a history of the conference at the 2018 edition here.

Since our 2020 meeting was canceled due to the pandemic, we have decided to continue the tradition online. We hope you will join us for a weekly seminar series, starting June 9th and running through the summer (and beyond). In order to make the seminar available to audiences around the world, our sessions will be recorded and live streamed on YouTube.

Time: Tuesdays at 1 pm Princeton time (EST) / 8 pm Bucharest time (GMT+2)

Place: Zoom (email us for the link) or YouTube live
