Event: First Conference of the Society for Philosophers of the Pandemic Generation

After the stimulating discussion at the Conference on Philosophy in the Pandemic Generation, participants decided then and there to begin something bigger: The Society for Philosophers of the Pandemic Generation. This group is open to any and all who feel that the pandemic influenced them during their formative years of philosophical training.

The First Conference of the Society for Philosophers of the Pandemic Generation welcomes abstracts:

That explicitly engage with the role of pandemics, epidemics, and the unique challenges, academic or otherwise, of 2020-2023.

That are the result of a research project in philosophy conceived or written during, or affected by, said challenges. 

That may be on a range of topics that need not be limited by content, this includes topics on the crossroads of philosophy and another discipline.

We encourage PhD students and early career researchers to submit an abstract, particularly those whose philosophical research overlaps with the timing of the pandemic. The objective of the conference is to provide a platform for graduate and postgraduate philosophers to present their work to peers, and to discuss experiences and research from the past three years. Ideas do not have to be finished or perfect; it can be work in progress. We also encourage undergraduate students of philosophy affected by the pandemic to submit research for a special showcase portion of the conference. 

Formal requirements:

Abstracts should be suitable for a 30-minute presentation.

Abstracts should be written in English.

Abstracts for papers should be fully anonymised.

Abstracts should not exceed 500 words, including references.

Your abstract will be anonymously reviewed. 

There is no registration fee for this conference. However, travel and stay costs cannot be reimbursed.

The deadline for submissions is

15 August 2023 to: [email protected]

The conference will be held: 

September 1, the CUNY Graduate Center
