Topic areas


The first annual conference of the newly formed Philosophy of Language Association will take place online on June 9 and 10, 2022. The goal of the conference, and of the association, is to provide a venue for philosophers of language to discuss new work in all areas of the field. Ultimately, we hope that each annual meeting (which we hope will be held in person in future years) will provide a reasonably comprehensive snapshot of the research being done in philosophy of language that year.

Keynote speakers:

Janice Dowell (Syracuse)

Daniel Rothschild (University College London)

Call for submissions:

We encourage submissions from philosophers who work in philosophy of language, broadly construed. We particularly want to encourage submissions from women, LGBTQ+ and members of other groups that have been underrepresented in our field. The schedule will be arranged so that people from as many continents as possible will be able to participate and attend as many of the talks as possible.  

We welcome submissions of abstracts of at most 1000 words (excluding bibliography). The plan is to have presentations of one hour, split between the talk and the Q&A, with 3 selected papers presented on each day of the conference.

Deadline for submission: April 15. 

Notification of acceptance: May 15. 

Submissions should be prepared for blind review, and submitted as PDFs with a separate cover sheet that includes: the author’s name, gender (optional), institutional affiliation, contact information, and paper title.

Please send your submission to [email protected]

For questions, please write to [email protected]

The organizers: Guillermo Del Pinal, Eliot Michaelson, Alex Radulescu, Katherine Ritchie, Una Stojnić, Emanuel Viebahn, Julia Zakkou.
