If you would like to attend, but have not been in contact please contact Damian Caluori at dcaluori [at] trinity.edu.
The conference will be held at the Holt Center at Trinity University (106 Oakmont Ct, San Antonio, Texas 78212). We will organize a shuttle that will take you from the hotel to the conference location and back. If you book a different hotel, please make your own arrangements to get to Trinity. Again, the best option presumably is a cab, Uber, Lyft etc.
Street parking will be available on Oakmont Court near the Holt Conference Center, and ten spaces will be reserved in Lot E between the Marrs McLean and Parker Chapel buildings. No permit is required on Friday, and on Saturday campus parking restrictions are waived.
The hotel we highly recommend is Hyatt Place San Antonio Airport - Quarry Market 7615 Jones - Maltsberger Rd , San Antonio, TX 78216.
The Quarry, an area with many restaurants, is a ten-minute-walk away from the hotel. The hotel will be happy to take you there with its shuttle. Our dinners will be at the Quarry.
It is advisable to fly into San Antonio. Austin is more than an hour’s drive from San Antonio, and there is hardly any public transport between the two cities. Moreover, the weekend of our conference is the beginning of the SXSW Festival in Austin. Many people will fly there.
To get from the airport to your hotel, the hotel offers a shuttle service. Please call them if you would like to take advantage of this (210-930-2333). Alternatively, you can take a cab (or Uber or such). Public transport in San Antonio is not great.
Edgar Herbert Granger III, Herbert Granger to all who knew him, died at his home in Grosse Pointe Park Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2019. He was 74. Born Oct. 25, 1944, in Beaumont, Texas, to Edgar Herbert Granger Jr. and Monnie Terry Granger, Herb earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas and a Ph.D. in ancient Greek philosophy from the University of Texas at Austin. At the time of his death, he was professor emeritus, department of philosophy, at Wayne State University. Herb dedicated his career to the study of ancient Greek philosophy with a focus on Aristotle. He published the book, “Aristotle’s Idea of the Soul” in 1996, and was the author of numerous invaluable articles on Aristotle as well as other ancient Greek philosophers. Later in his career, Herb became interested in the pre-Socratic thinkers and published extensively in this area as well. (Obituary Grosse Ponte News, February 13, 2019.)
