The SEP/FEP conference is the largest annual event in Europe that aims to bring together researchers, teachers and others, from different disciplines, interested in all areas of contemporary European philosophy. Submissions are therefore invited for individual papers and panel sessions in all areas of contemporary European philosophy. For 2014, submissions that address the conference’s plenary theme – Philosophy After Nature – are particularly encouraged. This would include papers and panels that are after nature in the sense of being in pursuit of nature’s consequences. We invite perspectives on critique, science, ecology, technology and subjectivity as bound up with conceptions of nature and experiment with various positions in contemporary thought.

Abstracts of 500 words for individual paper submissions and proposals for panels should be sent to Rick Dolphijn (philosophyafternature@uu.nl) by 17 May 2014. Proposals for panels should include a 500-word abstract for each paper within the panel. Proposals from academics, graduate students and independent scholars are welcome.

CALL FOR PAPERS/CONTRIBUTIONS

The Society for European Philosophy (SEP) aims to provide a forum for research and teaching in all areas of European philosophy, broadly construed. It provides an opportunity for scholars from any country, and any discipline, to come together and share ideas.  The Forum for European Philosophy, launched in 1996, is dedicated to initiating and sponsoring thoughtful and engaging events open to the general public.  It aims to encourage wider participation and to promote thought-provoking discussion on issues connected with contemporary cultural and intellectual life.

Since 1997, the SEP conference has been an important annual event for faculty, post-graduate students and independent scholars of European philosophy throughout the world. Since 2005 the SEP annual conference has been run jointly with the Forum for European Philosophy, helping to make the three-day conference the largest event of its kind in Europe.  This year the joint conference will also run in association with the London Graduate School.

This year’s conference will not have a theme. We therefore welcome proposals from the broadest range of European philosophical thought.

Anyone interested in presenting a paper, proposing a themed panel, or offering a different type of contribution, should submit a one page abstract to Wahida Khandker: W.Khandker@mmu.ac.uk

 

The deadline for submissions has been extended to the 18th June 2012

The deadline for submissions has been extended to the 18th June 2012

 

 

Please include your name, affiliation (if any, and please note that we wish to encourage proposals from independent scholars), your email and postal address. Decisions regarding the programme will be made by end of June, 2012.
