CALL FOR PAPERS: JACOB BOEHME (1575–1624) AND THE TRANSNATIONAL RECEPTION OF HIS THOUGHT
In 2017 the Dresden State Art Collections (SKD) in Germany presented an exhibition on the thought of the mystical philosopher Jacob Boehme. From 25 August - 19 November 2017 around 30,000 people visited the exhibition, and many more learned about Boehme's philosophy through the very positive response of the media to the exhibition. As part of its ongoing engagement with Boehme, the SKD is planning a series of further exhibitions to take place in 2019 - 2020 in locations outside Germany. These exhibitions will highlight in particular the reception and transformation of Boehme's thought transnationally. A scholary conference will accompany or precede each of these exhibitions.
