After successful Workshops the last three years, we have decided to host another this year! The Workshop came about through recognition of a lack of opportunities for Victorian postgraduate philosophers to meet and find out about each other’s research, outside of formal conference contexts. The one-day Victorian Postgraduate Philosophy Workshop provides a chance for postgraduate philosophy students to present their research to a wider audience than they otherwise would have at their home institution, but in a less formal environment than that of large conferences.

This year we are running the VPPW two weeks prior to the AAP. We encourage those speaking at the AAP in July to use the VPPW to practice their AAP talks. Papers are welcome from all areas of philosophy and streams will be created based on the submissions that we receive. We particularly encourage work by and about women and other marginalised social groups in philosophy. Both 30 minute and 60 minute time slots, including questions, are available.

The conference is primarily for Victorian postgraduate philosophy students, although students from elsewhere in Australia and overseas are more than welcome! Honours students will also be considered, but priority will be given to postgrads if spaces are limited.
