The Bertrand Russell Society will celebrate its 50th anniversary at its annual meeting from Friday, June 7 to Sunday, June 9, 2024, at the Center for Inquiry in Amherst, New York (near Buffalo). The Bertrand Russell Society is an international non-profit scholarly organization dedicated to the life, work, and causes of the philosopher Bertrand Russell (May 18th, 1872–February 2nd, 1970).

If you are interested in presenting a paper at the BRS Annual Meeting, please submit the paper through our website, at the following link:

We welcome papers on any aspect of Russell’s personal life and his thought, work, and legacy. We also welcome proposals for other activities that might be appropriate for the meeting (e.g., a master class on a work by Russell). The abstract should be no longer than two paragraphs. The deadline for submissions is April 2nd, 2024. It is necessary to be a member of the Society in order to give a presentation at the conference.

There is a time limit of 20 minutes for presentation. An additional 10 minutes are allotted for discussion. We are planning a hybrid conference, with some presentations in person on campus and others via Zoom. In-person presentations will get priority, should space restrictions become unmanageable.

Further details about the annual meeting (registration, etc.) will be posted on the Bertrand Russell Society website:

Please feel free to share this call for papers widely. And we hope to see you at the meeting!
