The Society for Medieval and Renaissance Thomism (S.M.A.R.T.) is planning a session for the 2015 meeting of the American Catholic Philosophical Association, Boston, MA, 8-11 October 2015. It is accepting papers on all aspects of Thomism from 1274 to the publication of the Carmelite Cursus Theologiae (1631-1701), with a preference for the period from John Capreolus (d. 1444) to John of St. Thomas (1589-1644). Please send papers and direct enquiries to Domenic D’Ettore at ddettore[at]marian[dot]edu. Special consideration will be given to papers received by March 25.
Terence Parsons has published Articulating Medieval Logic with OUP: http://global.oup.com/academic/product/articulating-medieval-logic-9780199688845?cc=us&lang=en& I've been looking forward to something like this from him since I heard him defend the first-order completeness of medieval logic at the APA several years ago. I can't wait to read it.

Therese Cory has given me permission to announce that she has accepted a position at the University of Notre Dame. She will start there after her Humboldt fellowship. It is exciting that there will be another Thomist at Notre Dame, and a particularly good one. I am currently reading her Aquinas on Human Knowledge, which so far is excellent.
