Conference website:

Following a very successful conference held in 2017 in Cologne, the second iteration of Issues in Philosophy of Memory will be held on 1-4 July 2019 in Grenoble. Over the last several years, the philosophy of memory has grown into an extremely dynamic and active area. The intention is for this conference series to bring together all researchers working in the field, and papers on all aspects of the philosophy of memory are thus welcome.

Confirmed keynote speakers:

  • Sven Bernecker, University of Cologne/University of California Irvine
  • Erica Cosentino, Ruhr-Universität Bochum
  • Carl Craver, Washington University St. Louis
  • Jérôme Dokic, École des hautes études en sciences sociales

Thanks to generous support from the CNRS GDR Mémoire, a prize of 400 EUR will be awarded to each of the seven best submissions by early-career researchers (PhD students and postdocs). Additional travel support for early-career researchers will also be available, the amount available per researcher to depend on the number of applicants. In order to be considered for one of the prizes/the additional funding, please indicate your early-career status in your abstract. If you have already submitted an abstract and wish to be considered, please send an email to Kourken Michaelian at
