SEP-FEP 2020: Change of dates and format

SEP/FEP 2020 Announcement and Renewed CFP

New dates for online conference: 30­–31 October and 6­–7 November 2020

 

Plenary Speakers:

Vera Bühlmannn (Technical University Vienna)

Meena Dhanda (University of Wolverhampton, tbc)

 

In light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Society for European Philosophy/Forum for Philosophy joint 2020 conference, originally scheduled for 27–28 August at Staffordshire University, will now take place online, as below. Proceedings have been rescheduled to accommodate the online format and to allow potential participants, who may have had reservations about public assembly, time to submit.

Registration fees will be significantly cheaper, to reflect reduced costs for the online format.

The new schedule is as follows:

Final date for submission of abstracts (250-300 words): 17 July

Notifications of acceptance: 24 July

The programme itself will now be divided over successive Friday afternoons and full Saturdays; 30­–31 October and 6­–7 November 2020

Those who have already submitted abstracts need not resubmit, but should note the revised date for confirmation. Registration details to follow very soon.

 

The SEP-FEP conference is the largest annual event in Europe, aiming to bring together researchers, teachers and students from different disciplines, interested in all areas of contemporary European philosophy. This year, to mark the passing of Michel Serres last June, special consideration will be given to proposals dealing with his work and themes.

Abstract proposals for papers and panels are invited in all areas of European philosophy. Proposals from academics, graduate students and independent scholars are all welcome. Proposals in the areas of feminist philosophy, philosophy of sex and gender, critical philosophy of race and postcolonial philosophy are particularly encouraged.

 

Submission Instructions:

Abstract proposals for individual papers should be no more than 250-300 words and include author and institutional affiliation on a separate sheet in order to facilitate anonymous review.

Panel proposals should include a brief panel description of no more than 100 words, with participant names and institutional affiliations on a separate sheet, and a 250-300 word abstract for each paper within the panel. Submissions and inquiries can be sent to: philconference2020@gmail.com
