Arché 10th Graduate Conference

14th October 2017 - 15th October 2017

Event Navigation

The 10th Arché Graduate Philosophy Conference will be an international event that will bring talented graduate students from around the world to the University of St Andrews for two days of research-led presentations and discussion. The conference will also provide attending students and faculty with the opportunity to engage with the work of two distinguished keynote speakers.

Our invited keynote speakers this year are Professor Robbie Williams (Leeds) and Professor Matti Eklund (Uppsala). The conference will take place on October 14th – 15th, in the Edgecliffe Philosophy Department, in St Andrews.

The Arché Research Centre has a history of hosting successful postgraduate conferences, and this will be the 10th in the series. Given the success of last year’s conference, we will continue with the expanded format of having slots for eight external graduate students. We will also have slots for postgraduate students in St Andrews to respond to the speakers, ensuring that participation is as wide as possible. The conference will be widely advertised, entirely free to attend, and open to any postgraduate student who wishes to participate.

We invite submissions to the 10th edition of the Arché Graduate Conference, to be held at the University of St Andrews on the 14th and 15th of October 2017. Papers should be on topics relevant to at least one of the active research projects in Arché (Logic, Language, Metaphysics, Mind, and Epistemology) broadly construed. We particularly encourage submissions from members of underrepresented groups in philosophy.

Any graduate student (except those currently enrolled in the University of St Andrews).

All accepted papers will receive comments from one graduate student from Arché.
We will guarantee free accommodation, and also aim to provide substantial travel bursaries to speakers.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 31st of July.
Submissions must be suitable for a presentation of around 40 minutes. Papers should be no longer than 4,500 words; must be authored (or co-authored) by current graduate students (limited to 1 submission per author); and be suitable for blind-review. Please also submit an abstract (max. 250 words) — to be copied into the EasyChair submission form:
