The BSHP Annual Conference, at which the Annual General Meeting is held, usually takes place in the spring at a UK university. Normally, we hold themed conferences and larger, general conferences in alternate years. Members are encouraged to submit an abstract when the Call for Papers is issued.
To attend and/or deliver a paper at the Annual Conference, you must be a member of the BSHP and pay the conference registration fee. There is no conference registration fee for student participants.
We offer a limited number of bursaries for speakers who are students and/or unwaged, and support for childcare. Facilities vary by university, so please see specific conference information for details.

Proposals for individual papers and for papers organized in themed symposia are invited on any aspect of the history of philosophy. In line with the BSHP’s commitment to broadening the canon, proposals on currently under-represented philosophical traditions, periods and thinkers are especially welcome. All proposals must be anonymized for blind peer-review.
Deadline: 30th November, 2021
All conference participants, including accepted speakers, must be BSHP members. However, you need not be a member in order to submit an abstract. To become a BSHP member, please click here.
As signatories of the BPA/SWIP Good Practice Scheme, the BSHP will take steps to ensure gender balance among speakers and participants.
