Warwick Graduate Conference in the Philosophy of Mind

7th-8th December 2019, University of Warwick (UK)

Registration for MindGrad 2019 is now open.  Please register here:


Deadline Extended:

The deadline for submissions has now been extended until October 14th.

MindGrad is a long-established and well-respected graduate conference held annually in the University of Warwick. Our theme this year will be ‘ourselves and others’. We invite papers from graduate students who have interesting things to say about our knowledge of ourselves, our knowledge of other minds, and the relation between them. Questions that particularly concern us include, but are not limited to, the following: how do we come to have knowledge about our own minds and the minds of others? can we identify different kinds of self-knowledge? what are the roles of communication and emotion in knowing ourselves and others? and how should we characterise the relationship between first, second and third person kinds of knowledge? These questions lend themselves to approach from relatively diverse perspectives, and we encourage contributions from such various perspectives, so long as they are focused upon the central theme as outlined above.

Any graduate student is welcome to submit a paper for consideration, whether working predominantly in the philosophy of mind or not. Submissions should be sent in the form of papers of around 5,000 to 6,000 words, suitable for presentation in thirty to forty minutes. These should be accompanied by an abstract of around 500 words. Papers will be reviewed by members of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Warwick, and accepted papers will receive a response from a member of faculty. 

Papers are to be submitted for blind review as .pdf files at the following e-mail address: [email protected]. Please include your name and institutional affiliation in the text of the e-mail but ensure that there is no identifying information in the text of the paper itself. There will be no fee for attendance and accommodation will be provided for speakers. We encourage submissions from graduate students from any walk of life, including under-represented groups in philosophy.

The deadline for applications has been extended to 14th October 2019.

The conference venue is wheelchair accessible.  We aim to make the conference accessible in accordance with BPA/SWIP guidelines.  

If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected]
