THE POSTGRADUATE CONFERENCE
Now in its sixteenth successive year, the annual conference of the British Postgraduate Philosophy Association (BPPA) is the largest, most prestigious and longest running graduate philosophy conference in the United Kingdom. This year’s conference is to be held at the University of Edinburgh from 3-6 September.
Speakers and respondents will have the option of having their papers published in a special issue of Philosophical Writings. Bursaries will be offered to all speakers and respondents.
THE BPPA CAREERS DAY
Following the success of last year's inaugural BPPA Careers Day, the BPPA has decided to run it a second time. The Careers Day is a full day of talks and symposia given by leading academics on topics related to careers in philosophy.
We welcome papers in all areas and traditions of philosophy, from graduate students all over the world. Authors of papers who make it to the final stage of reviewing but are not accepted will be given the opportunity to respond to accepted papers at the conference. Decisions on whether papers have been accepted will be made by mid-July.
Word limit: 3,000 words (including footnotes, but excluding reference bibliography).
Papers should be prepared for blind review.
Submission deadline: 6rd June.
Please submit papers as Microsoft Word documents by email email@example.com.
Please put ‘Conference Paper Submission’ as the subject of your email.
Please include in a separate document a cover sheet containing your name, departmental affiliation, email address, contact telephone number and the title of your paper.
Bursaries are available to all speakers and respondentsin the form of a partial reimbursement of the conference fees, thanks to the generous support of the Analysis Trust. In addition to this, we are able to offer specific bursaries to graduate students submitting papers on logic, awarded on a competitive basis. These bursaries have been made thanks to generous sponsorship from the British Logic Colloquium (BLC). Successful papers that receive these must meet with the guidelines on the BLC website:
