The University of New South Wales will host the 2015 Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy conference at its Kensington Campus, in Sydney.
The ASCP aims to provide a broad intellectual forum for academics and postgraduates working in the European tradition, and its annual conference is the largest such event devoted to philosophy in Australia.
Registration, along with information about accommodation and the University campus will be available here shortly.
Call for papers
We are now accepting proposals (submitted through the link on the left) for either 30 or 45 minute sessions in any area of Continental philosophy, broadly understood. These preferences will be honoured as much as is possible within the constraints of the conference timetable.
