Call for Papers
Proposals for individual papers and for papers organized in themed symposia are invited on women in philosophy from any period of the discipline’s history. In line with the BSHP’s commitment to broadening the canon, proposals on currently under-represented philosophical traditions, periods and authors are especially welcome. All proposals must be anonymized for blind peer-review.
Individual papers: please send an abstract of MAX 500 words (in word format) for a paper suitable for a 30 minute slot (20 mins for the paper, 10 mins for Q&A) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Symposia: please send a proposal of MAX 500 words (in word format) for a symposium of 3-4 papers (each paper suitable for a 30 minutes slot) with abstracts of MAX 300 words for each paper to email@example.com. Please also submit, in a separate document, the email address and institution of each participant, and the name and email of the symposium organizer who will serve as contact person.
Deadline: 30th November, 2019
Please note: all conference participants, including accepted speakers, must be BSHP members. However, it is not necessary to be a member in order to simply submit an abstract. For information on the BSHP and how to join please visit https://www.bshp.org.uk
