COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Bertrand Russell Society 2020 Annual Meeting will be held online. Please check our website for further updates: https://bertrandrussellsociety.org/meetings/
The Bertrand Russell Society (BRS), an international organization dedicated to the life, thought, and legacy of Bertrand Russell, will hold its annual meeting online from Friday, June 19 to Sunday, June 21, 2020.
Those interested in presenting a paper at the BRS Annual Meeting should submit the paper title and abstract through our website, at the following link: https://bertrandrussellsociety.org/submissions/
Special emphasis will be given to commemorating Russell’s continuing influence on the 50th anniversary of his death on 2nd February 1970. It is also the 100th anniversary of Russell’s visits to Russia and China, leading, of course to two books: The Practice and Theory of Bolshevism and The Problem of China. But 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 submission is April 2, 2020. There is a time limit of 20 minutes for presentation. An additional 10 minutes is allotted for discussion. Further details about the annual meeting (registration, etc.) will be posted at the Bertrand Russell Society website: https://bertrandrussellsociety.org/meetings
Thank you, and we hope to see you at the meeting!
