Submission Guidelines

The name, institution, and references pertaining to the identity of the author must be omitted from the paper, notes, bibliography, and document properties to facilitate anonymous review.

Papers must not exceed 3,000 words (max. 30 mins reading time), exclusive of footnotes and bibliography. Longer papers will not be forwarded to the Program Committee. Abstracts will not be considered for the program. We allow submission from those who have presented in the previous year, but to ensure balance we prioritize those who did not present in the previous year.

The APS values diversity in its membership as well as in its scholarly perspectives. We particularly invite submissions from members of groups underrepresented in philosophy, including women, people of color, LGBTQ2S+ individuals, and neurodivergent individuals, as well as persons who are otherwise abled. The event venue is fully accessible with gender-neutral restrooms. To make the event as accessible and welcoming to all persons as possible, we welcome any questions regarding accessibility, childcare support, and related matters.

The Ancient Philosophy Society was established to provide a forum for diverse scholarship on ancient Greek and Roman texts. Honouring the richness of the American and European philosophical traditions, the APS supports phenomenological, postmodern, Anglo-American, Straussian, Tübingen School, hermeneutic, psychoanalytic, queer, and feminist interpretations of Ancient Greek and Roman philosophical and literary works.
