The Society for European Philosophy held its inaugural conference in 1996, and has held an annual conference every year since then. It is managed by an executive committee of academics. The Society aims to support teaching and research in all areas of European (Continental) philosophy, providing a forum where people working on a broad range of topics within different disciplines can come together and pursue ideas. It aims to promote the understanding of the various traditions of Continental Philosophy within the Anglo-American philosophical world, within academia more broadly, and within the wider public sphere.
The SEP conference is now a major annual event for students and scholars of continental philosophy. From 2005 the SEP annual conference has been run jointly with the Forum for European Philosophy, helping to make the three-day conference one of the largest events in the field.
You become a member of SEP by attending the annual conference. Anyone is welcome to attend the Executive committee meeting, which takes place at the conference, and to apply to join the Executive.
