A big thank you to all speakers and delegates at the BSP Annual Conference 2019

Annual Conference Thumbnail

Here’s some photos of our speakers from the BSP Annual Conference held 5 – 7 September 2019 in Manchester, UK.

The BSP Annual Conference is a longstanding and respected feature of the UK academic scene, providing a friendly and supportive forum for inter-disciplinary discussion. We actively seek to explore the interface between the theory and history of phenomenology and its practice across multiple perspectives, from practitioners and philosophers, including both the European / Continental and Anglo-American / Analytic traditions, as well as postgraduate researchers.

The 2019 Annual Conference was held at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Manchester, UK, between Thursday 5 and Saturday 7 September 2019. You can still check out the programme, papers and speaker biographies via the 2019 Annual Conference homepage. Here are some images from the conference:
