We welcome submissions from all graduate students in philosophy for the 24th Annual Oxford Philosophy Graduate Conference to be held on 14-15th November 2020 at the University of Oxford. We sincerely hope that the COVID-19 pandemic will end by that time as the safety and wellbeing of our participants are of the utmost importance to us. If necessary, we plan to pospone the date of the conference. 

The University of Oxford’s Annual Graduate Philosophy Conference enjoys a reputation as one of the most prestigious philosophy conferences at the graduate level in the United Kingdom.

Papers can be on any topic in philosophy. We aim to represent a broad range of philosophical debates and traditions in our final selection, across areas of both theoretical and practical philosophy.

Each student presentation will be followed by a response from a member of the Oxford Philosophy Faculty. 

All submissions will undergo a double-blind review process.

For submission details, see below.


All current graduate students in philosophy may apply (except students enrolled at Oxford at the time of the conference).
