The program is designed for PhD students, postdocs, and early career researchers in Philosophy, but the summer school is also open to those working in cognate areas who would benefit from participating. We will accept applications from MA students and professionals working in relevant areas. Students will be issued with a certificate of participation upon completion. 

Students will be asked to provide a poster for sessions designed to share research and stimulate collaboration. This is a great opportunity for students to present their own work to a group of their peers and experts in the field.

The summer school will take place in Paris, France at the University of London in Paris (ULIP) from 1st - 5th July 2024.   The fee to attend is £440, payment details will be sent to successful applicants. 

To apply for the summer school, please complete our Form(Opens in new window). There are 20 spaces for Track 1 and 20 spaces for Track 2. Students are welcome to attend sessions in either track, but we aim for a balance in primary interests. Admissions decisions will be finalised by February 15th 2024. Application will be accepted until February 1st 2024.
