    Julie Brumberg-Chaumont, faculty member at the PSL/CNRS (Paris), specialized in the history of the Latin Aristotelian traditions and the history of late ancient and medieval logic. She has edited Ad Notitiam ignoti, l’Organon dans la translation studiorum à l’époque d’Albert le Grand, Turnout, Brepols, 2013, and published a series of papers in the history of logic, grammar and philosophy. She currently runs two projects intended to implement new approaches in the history of logic, beyond a purely doctrinal method and a restricted definition of logic as a formal discipline: the project “Homo Logicus, Logic at the Edges of Humanity” (Hastec/PSL/EPHE/EHESS/CNRS), and the project “The Europe of Logic: Medieval and Early Modern Traditions in Contexts” (PSL/EPHE/EHESS/CNRS/Collège de France), where history of logic fruitfully meets social sciences, intellectual history,  history of education, areas studied, intercultural philosophy and disable studies. Her current personal research includes the history of logical form and of “logical hylomorphism”, the history of Latin medieval “logical education” in a variety of places of knowledge inside and outside the Faculties of Arts, and the history of Aristotelian Latin traditions at large. She has recently co-authored a study and edition of the commentaries on Aristotle’s De memoria et reminiscentia by Adam of Bockenfield and his circle at Oxford in 1240s (OUP, series “Auctores Britannici Medii Aevi”, forthcoming) and a monograph dedicated to the social history, the anthropology and the philosophy of logic in the 13th century (À l’École de la logique. L’Essor de la logique comme norme intellectuelle, sociale et anthropologique au XIIIe siècle). She is currently co-editing a book entitled Logical Skills, Social-Historical Perspectives (Springer, series “Studies in Universal Logic”, forthcoming).
