The British & Irish Postgraduate Philosophy Association (BIPPA) is glad to present their conference on Women in the History of Ancient Philosophy, which constitutes their regional conference for Wales, the West of England, and the Midlands. The conference is sponsored by the British Society for the History of Philosophy, and it is scheduled to take place on 4th February 2023 at the University of Bristol. The deadline for abstract submission is 13th January 2023.

We are accepting proposals for talks on any topic related to women in the History of Ancient Philosophy, broadly understood. Suggestions for topics of the talk include the ideas of female philosophers in Ancient Philosophy; the historiography of philosophy done by women; the influence of female philosophers on Ancient Philosophy; and many others.    We encourage all students based in the UK and the Republic of Ireland to apply. However, regional conferences are conceived as a way for students in local and regional communities to get to know each other and create an enriching philosophical community in the vicinity, so we will give priority to submissions from students of the region considered.

People who have previously completed a postgraduate degree in philosophy and are in the transition to another are also welcome, regardless of their enrolment status. We especially encourage applications from all who identify as members of underrepresented groups in academia. Some travel bursaries will be available for students who are not based in Bristol. We will also be able to provide childcare support for presenters with caring responsibilities. For any further information, don't hesitate to contact us at [email protected].   Speakers will be asked to prepare a presentation of around 20 minutes and take friendly and constructive feedback from audience members.  Universities of the region:
